How many times when you log into your bank account statement, on-line gas bill, etc do they suggest not printing, consider the environment, bla, bla, bla.

Google turns up lots of interventions, but says they are not for the faint-hearted. In the circs it looks as if a cheapo replacement, with cheapo carts, may be my answer.
