We use batteries. We throw them into recycle bin. We buy new ones. We never really think about HOW much of a waste this process really is. Wastes in terms of money. AND in terms of the environment.
People talk about "battery recycling". But how much of the battery materials are recycled? By what means?
The best way to think of recycling or environment protection should be conservation. Conserve the amount of resources that go into making a product. Then get the most useful life out of it. Build products that LAST a long time, at realistic cost.
One AppTORRENT rechargeable li-ion battery can be used hundreds of times like new. Save money AND save the environment!
