Battery Collecting

0.55% of batteries are recycled in California. Here is a plan to reach 50%

The problem

According to a report [1], vendors sold more than 507 millions batteries in California in 2001: only 0.55% of these batteries were recycled.

When not recyclyed, a single battery will pollute 35 cubic foot and 265 gallons of water for 50 years. The battery contains heavy metal like lead, mercury, aluminum or lithium [2]. They are well-known to accumulate into living being, their body concentration increasing while climbing up the chain food, which ultimately ends inside our bodies.

The consequences of intoxication with heavy metal are very serious.

[2] but also Cadmium, Nickel, Iron, Zinc, Calcium, Magnesium.

The solution

Volunteer waste collecting

Fortunately, the recycling process is very efficient: 60% of the metal can be reused after the process.

However, it seems that used batteries do not reach those recycling facilities because they end up stuck in jars or boxes, forgotten on our shelves in our home, which can lead to self intoxications .

That's why we can volunteer to make the link between our homes and the recycling facilities, throughout the neighborhood. We went collecting batteries in our neighborhood and realized that 50% of the houses have very significant amounts of batteries. It means that the batteries are accumulated for about 10 years in half the households and then 99% of them finally throw them to the normal trash. If we catch the batteries before that moment, by knocking on their doors, we can recycle these 50% by bringing them to local shops.
If you want to volunteer, send a short email to [adrien dot chopin at gmail.com].

Howdy this is kind of of off topic but I was
wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding expertise so I wanted to get guidance from
someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!

Hi there! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site?
I'm getting fed up of Wordpress because I've had issues with
hackers and I'm looking at alternatives for another platform.
I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

Divorce,drama, loss of a job, health problems about yourself or someone you care about
- this stuff happen. Would it mean gaining or losing weight and then being
more active, physically or socially. If you are serious on slimming down and need to achieve good health,
you have to do several adjustments within your lifestyle.
