Batteries power up our computers, electric vehicles, cellphones, and many other devices that are part of our routines. Electric car popularity has been growing fast, and this is great, but it is also essential to stay alert on the tons of batteries that once powered those cars and end up in landfills. Those old batteries mean more than tons of e-waste and pollution because they also leak up toxic gases such as carbon dioxide that could be very dangerous to human health.
Almost every single electronic device has a battery. Have you ever wondered how many batteries are used each year? On average, a home has about 80 to 100 batteries in it, among toys, remotes, phones, power tools, etc. It is astonishing how many batteries are used in a single home. Imagine how many of them are used only in your city.
