Introducing the world’s first carbon neutral battery

Introducing the world’s first carbon neutral, eco superior battery

The world’s first eco-responsible batteries are now available in New Zealand. Eco Alkalines are high power, long life alkaline batteries and the first of their kind to be certified as carbon neutral, offsetting carbon emissions.

“Don’t just start the year with good intentions, make a difference in 2014 with
conscious purchasing decisions,” says Lionel Lalonde VP Sales Eco Alkalines inc.

“Every Eco Alkaline purchase is carbon neutral with 0% cadmium lead mercury, recyclable packaging and PET plastic, while being environment and landfill conscious.”

For the first time in an eco-battery, reliability and performance is the equal or better than the leading non-eco brands.

“Eco Alkalines are made with 80% recyclable materials and are 98% recyclable, If recycling is not available and the batteries happen to be disposed of in household rubbish they are non-toxic,” says Lionel Lalonde VP Sales Eco lkalines Inc. “Our batteries are ‘eco superior’, which means they leave a ositive impact to benefit the environment.

Geoff Thomas of TV3’s Rheem Outdoors with Geoff programme says: “We use a lot of batteries when we are filming. As we are often out in ‘the back of beyond’
we have to carry a lot of batteries. Our microphones and sound equipment chew through double AA’s like a kingfish swallowing a live bait, and running out of batteries at the critical moment has been the bane of my life.

“I have been using the Eco-Alkaline batteries all year and I love them. Not ply
are we being eco-friendly, which is pretty important when your living relies on the outdoor environment, but they last. These green batteries last as long, if not longer, than all the others I have tried – and I’ve used them all over the years. They work brilliantly. And they last.”

The Eco Alkaline range consists for the usual AAA, AA, C, D and 9 volt. Eco Alkaline batteries are available from Countdown nationwide, as well as smaller stores such as ecostore, Wise Circada, Wendyl's Green Goddess shop, Harvest Wholefoods, Commonsense Organics and Huckleberry Farms. Batteries start at RRP $4.95.
