We believe in the power of recycling.
It used to be thought that the notion of recycling was just a trend. Today, the Earth is a smarter, cleaner place, thanks to committed recycling of paper products, plastics, glass and metals. We're all making a real difference to help the planet in a lot of little ways that add up to big impact.
What about recycling batteries?
The recycling of batteries is steadily growing as a consumer habit. More than 5.7 million pounds of batteries were recycled in the first seven months of 2015*, a strong indicator that battery recycling will increase for its 19th year in a row.
Energizer® continues to lead the charge.
Energizer® has a history of industry “firsts”, but lately we're most proud of two recycling firsts – our Energizer® EcoAdvanced® batteries and our Energizer Recharge® batteries. By combining innovation and environmental stewardship, we were able to achieve what scientists and industry leaders long thought impossible, the world's first AA and AAA batteries made with 4% recycled batteries. Energizer® EcoAdvanced® holds the title of our longest-lasting alkaline battery, while Energizer Recharge® is the first rechargeable to also contain recycled batteries. Both innovations represent another step in our journey to bring performance and responsibility to the world.
We're partnering with the best.
Our commitment to recycling includes several strategic partnerships with organizations that encourage, inform and empower consumers to recycle their batteries. We're proud to work alongside Earth 911 and Call2Recycle, both of whom are instrumental in helping us create much-needed awareness. We also work closely with the Corporation for Battery Recycling (CBR), the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA), and the Portable Rechargeable Battery Association (PRBA).
Innovating for the future.
Energizer® is committed to bringing positive energy to the world by creating less waste and working toward a better future.
Our future innovation will continue to reduce the impact Energizer® batteries have on the planet. By 2025, our vision for Energizer® EcoAdvanced® is to increase the amount of recycled battery material ten-fold to 40%. It's an exciting journey – please join us!
