Ink cartridges don't last nearly as long as toner cartridges (but, admittedly, have less plastic), but in low volume printing, you'll end up replacing ink far more often (in terms of page count), due to them drying up, and you'll probably end up replacing printers far more often due to ink being more expensive than the printer.

So, overall cradle-to-grave energy consumption of a laser may be better.
