EcoPro FAQs - Have questions about EcoPro? 

We have carried out our own analysis of the greenhouse gas emissions associated with all the stages of the EcoPro device and supplies life cycle: 

  • Raw material production 
  • Device manufacture 
  • Distribution
  • Use 
  • Disposal 

This dataset was prepared with Brother method of life cycle thinking and has not been verified by an independent third party.  

For more information on Brother product life cycle thinking visit our global website here.

For the purpose of the assessment the following assumptions have been made:

  • The refurbishment process take place in a maintenance facility that uses green energy 
  • Energy usage CO2e emissions are included in with the black toner/ink cartridge since this is used for both mono and colour printing. 
  • Used toner cartridges are returned to Brother for remanufacturing or recycling. 
  • Used ink cartridges are returned to Brother for pyrolysis with energy recovery. 
  • The remanufacturing process has been newly introduced and we have assumed a level of refurbishment, replacements of parts and packaging. 

Source: CO2 conversion factors, “LCI Database IDEA version 2.3” associated with  IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) 2013 GWP 100a was used.

Your EcoPro subscription includes enough supplies for printing up to 6,000 pages* per year. This is usually enough for most home office and small business use. However, if you find that you print more, you can order additional supplies by paying a small top up fee. 

*The included pages and the expected page yield of Brother supplies are calculated in accordance with ISO/IEC 19798 for colour laser, ISO/IEC 19752 for mono laser or ISO/IEC 24711 for inkjet.

Rather than the complication of deciding between multiple models and ranges, all you need to do is choose which capabilities you need from your printer. That could include colour or mono, laser or inkjet. We’ll then send a device that meets or exceeds those needs, from either new or refurbished stock. Using refurbished stock is part of our commitment to the circular economy, designing-out waste and reducing CO2e in our production process. You get the same warranties and protections with a refurbished printer as you do with a new one. 

If you print more pages than included in the subscription or using more graphics/images than in the ISO standard, then your included supplies will be used more quickly.  

The expected page yield of Brother supplies are calculated in accordance with: 

If you print over your allowance, you can order a supply delivery earlier than you would normally be entitled by paying a top up fee. 

The top up fee will be calculated based on how early you order the supply compared to the date you would normally be entitled.  The cost and date will be clearly shown in the EcoPro portal and if you choose to go ahead, the cost will be added to your next monthly payment.

For example:  

  • Your subscription will be delivered with  a mono device on a 12 month minimum term 6,000 ISO page subscription that comes with a 3,000 ISO page toner.  
  • You can then order your next 3,000 ISO page supply any time after the first 30 days of your subscription.  
  • If you run out of supplies  before the end of your term, you can simply order the supplies  through the portal and pay the top-up fee.  
  • If this happens in the 12th month of your subscription, you can order the supply you would be entitled to in month 13 early, and pay the top-up fee, rather than buying a new supply outright.  
  • You can order your first included supply 30 days after the start of your subscription 
  • You can only order supplies of the same colour once per month 
  • There are separate entitlements for mono and colour supplies 
  • You don’t have to pick equal amounts of each colour. For example, if you’re entitled to 6 colour toners over the course of your subscription you could pick 1 magenta, 1 yellow and 4 cyan. 
You can cancel your subscription by contacting Brother through the EcoPro portal. Cancellations are effective from the end of the monthly billing cycle. Collection of any unused supplies should be arranged within 30 days of that date to avoid being charged for an additional month. When cancelling before the end of the minimum term, you will be charged for the remain period. There is no refund for unused/unordered supplies unless you cancel within 14 days from the day after you receive your printer.

*Excluding VAT. Promotional period ends 31/03/2021. Normally £20. Limited to 1 device per customer/address. Terms and Conditions apply

**Up to 70% saving based on an EcoPro subscription versus buying a printer and supplies separately.
