Better recycling, better battery, better world.

Better means we’ve considered the full life cycle of your batteries from start to finish. Many of us even make the effort to recycle paper, drive electric cars, and save water. Why, then, are we so willing to throw away used batteries? Better Battery Co. has created the world’s first battery service aimed to help the environment.

Recycling batteries helps the environment.

It may surprise you to know that the convenience of “disposable” batteries comes with a hefty carbon footprint and a substantial risk of contributing to environmental pollution. Battery recycling and carbon offsetting is our simple—yet ingenious—solution to this too-long-overlooked problem.

We’ve created a system that allows you to receive and recycle your batteries more easily than ever before. Every Better Battery corporate order includes a percentage recycling credit off your total. From there we ask that you send your depleted batteries to our recycling partner Raw Materials Co. OR the recycling partner of your choice so they can take care of the rest – while you rest assured you’ve done your part for the environment.

A better
recycling process.

How much of a battery can be recycled? We’ve pioneered a fully sustainable cycle that enables us to recycle components associated with the batteries, packaging, and everything in between. Not only that, but we take care of recycling while offsetting the carbon footprint associated with every single step of your batteries’ lifecycle: manufacturing, shipping, and even recycling.

How we achieved this:

  1. All of our batteries are Alkaline batteries, helping us ensure that the battery sorting is accurate when it’s at our partner recycling facility.
  2. Our packaging is fully recyclable. The materials used to ship your batteries is also recycled after the batteries reach Raw Materials Co..
  3. Worried about carbon emissions? So were we! We’ve calculated all of the carbon offset associated with your batteries' life -- a calculation called the Life Cycle Analysis (LCA). We then partnered with to ensure we can offset every last bit of carbon emissions associated with your batteries.

Batteries are recycled
for new, better uses.

At the recycling facility components are broken down and individual components are carefully extracted for new uses. The recycled battery components will be used to make new and more sustainable items, like:

  • Zinc manganese concentrate is used as a micronutrient in fertilizer to improve crop yield.
  • Zinc oxide can be used as an effective, non-toxic sunscreen component.
  • The steel components in our alkaline batteries are used for steel-based products, such as cookware.
  • Contents like paper, plastic, and brass are used to strengthen concrete in road construction.

Pretty neat, right? It’s all part of our commitment to recycle every possible material from each and every battery. Just the way it should be.
