Did you know that nearly 15 billion single-use alkaline batteries are sold worldwide every year? When you're gifting an electronic item that needs a battery, consider upgrading to rechargeable. Unlike alkaline batteries, rechargeables can be reused up to 1,000 times before needing to be replaced. And these batteries often only take about 15 minutes to fully charge. The long-term effect is dramatic: less waste to the landfill and less money wasted on buying new batteries. And don't forget: Rechargeable batteries are recyclable, too.
