7 reasons to recycle your old batteries:
1.They leak harmful metals
Heavy metals such as nickel, cadmium & lithium can contaminate the groundwater.
2. They cause health problems
Having contaminated the groundwater, toxins can then be ingested by wildlife which can make their way up the food chain and into the human body, causing potentially serious health issues.
3. Only 5% of batteries are recycled properly
It’s estimated that only 5% of lithium-ion batteries are recycled properly and in some parts of the world it’s considerably less.
4. 40% of us throw batteries in the bin
We’re giving you all the incentive not to this week; take your old vape battery in store this week and save 10%!
5. 80% of us would recycle batteries if it was more convenient
Which is encouraging! Contact your local council as many do currently offer battery recycling services.
6. Our reliance on batteries keeps increasing
At present we throw away around 600 million batteries a year in the UK and this number is rising as technology use increases.
7. Batteries contain useful materials
Batteries contain valuable materials that can be recovered and reused. As they don’t break down in landfills they will otherwise remain there forever.
