Question from Martha
Do you know of a home printer that does not offgas when in use?
All printers will offgas. In addition to off-gassing, printers can emit particles into the air which is also harmful. Always use a printer in a well-ventilated area, keep it away from your bedroom, and use a high quality air purifier.
Here is a helpful resource to identify less harmful electronics. Look for “gold” level printers that score highly on reducing environmentally sensitive materials.
