Batteries have their share of contributing to the growing e-waste problem and while some companies have already shifted towards the use of rechargeable batteries, it seems that that only little improvement has been obtained.
Some do still use the disposable batteries available in the market but with Bettery and taking the two issues together, a step in the right direction may yet lead to improvements in addressing the proper disposal (or minimization) of disposable batteries.
Bettery batteries can reportedly be good for up to 500 recharges, something which should gain the approval of folks who often use batteries. Not only that, they also have an exchange program as well which means that once their Bettery batteries are all used up, all they have to do is surrender the old ones in exchange for new ones.
Bettery kiosks are up now in a few Whole Foods locations and at Portland State University and hopefully soon, stores and other markets will also consider selling them so that the whole e-waste issue improves for the better.
