Day 101: Bought Rechargeable Batteries

Day 101: Bought Rechargeable Batteries

I bought a new pair of rechargeable batteries.

The rechargeable batteries that I was using have died and it was time.

According to, “On average, each person in the U.S discards eight dry-cell batteries per year. Additionally, most batteries are made up of heavy metals. Some of these toxic heavy metals in batteries include nickel, mercury and lead, which can threaten our environment if not properly discarded.”
