The Battery Project

Reuse, Reincarnate, Reinvent

to stay green

HOW DID WE GET THE IDEA

 

We were at our doctors’ office for a check up and noticed that her assistant would remove batteries from monitors and throw them away. The batteries  had only been used for a few hours. The assistant said that they were safe to reuse but cannot be used in the office because monitors need a fresh batteries to work efficiently. 

HOW DID WE DO IT?​
  • We supplied offices with battery collection bins.
  • Collected partially used batteries.
  • Weighed, counted and inspected our collection.
  • Sorted them by size and company.
  • Filled them in envelopes.
  • Decorated the envelopes.
  • Wrote a message about recycling.
  • Handed them out to be used in remote control devices.
  • Initiated a conversation about the importance of reusing and recycling.
