The first ecological battery available in Canada, let's celebrate the Earth on April 22nd

SAGUENAY, QC, April 16, 2018  /CNW Telbec/ - The first ecological battery on the market is finally available to all Canadians. It's distinctions? It is mercury, cadmium, lead, lithium, and PVC free, and it is just as powerful, if not more so than the competition. Respectful of the environment, it is composed with more than 93% of recycled and recyclable materials. It's packaging is also made of recycled and recyclable materials and 100% recyclable PET plastic.

60% of Canadians put their unloaded batteries in the garbage

A household and environmental survey, conducted in 2005, states that 60% of Canadians dumped their discharged batteries to the garbage. This poses a significant threat to the environment because they contain toxic substances identified in the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999.: http://www.statcan.gc.ca/pub/16-002-x/2008001/10539-eng.htm

According to Environment Canada's PCE Study, in 2004, 11,300 tonnes of batteries were discarded and 323 tonnes recycled. In 2010, 15,327 tons of batteries were discarded and 650 tons recycled.

A green and logical alternative

A green alternative is now available to all to counter the use of household batteries harmful to the environment. The range of Fuji EnviroMAX eco-friendly batteries can even be disposed safely because they are environmentally friendly and landfill compliant.

Why?

Fuji EnviroMAX batteries and packaging:

  • do not contain mercury, cadmium, lithium, lead
  • are not made of harmful and non-recyclable PVC plastic
  • are safe for landfills
  • do not contain harmful elements for the environment
  • are as powerful if not more than the competition, without being more expensive

Manufacturing is also responsible

Fuji EnviroMAX batteries do not emit ozone-depleting compounds and their factories operate according to strict environmentally responsible standards. Following a totally green approach, the 3R approach is recommended: Reduce, Reuse and Recycle.

The Quebec Center of durable development concludes in a report that: "the Fuji EnviroMAX battery has many environmental benefits" and that "the company stands out from its competitors on several levels."

Where to get them?

The products are currently available in many food markets, hardware stores and distributors across Canada. Consumers are more likely than ever to turn to "green" and choose environmentally friendly, high-performance and competitively priced products.

An innovation for fundraising campaigns for organizations!

Organizations are often short of ideas for fundraising. The division www.Myfundraisingcampaign.com has the solution to stand out with a useful product, that is ecological, easy to sell and very profitable.

Let's celebrate the Earth, on April 22nd, and for that, every gesture contributes to a better tomorrow. Let's continue to change our habits by using environmentally friendly batteries, Fuji EnviroMAX batteries.
