IEBGreen Challenge: Re-use Batteries

anonymous said... "When the batteries in the kids' toys don't work anymore, I don't throw them out. A lot of times these games require a lot of juice in batteries, which means, there is actually plenty juice left for a less needy game or item. I use them in clocks, or little flashlights, something that requires much less power!"

Love it! Tried it and it's true! Keep the suggestions rolling in. Everything you contribute helps others get Greener.

For things like kids toys, it's hard to beat rechargeable NiMh batteries. I run a small fleet of programmable robots for summer science camps and would guess I've avoided over 6 kilos of scrap batteries in the last few years.
