Sustainable September 2015 - Day Twenty Five

Hello my lovely blog followers,

I hope this finds you all well. Did you have a chance to check out the price for the Rainwater tanks?

September 25: Buy and use Rechargeable batteries.

This is an awesome and great long term investment. We used to buy huge numbers of batteries for the different devices in our house. AAs from the best battery companies would cost about $5 AUD for two. We would be buying batteries every few weeks and it is amazing how fast the cost mounts. Rechargeable Batteries cost more initially but after buying the recharger and a few of each size of batteries, you do not need to buy more. You just keep reusing the same batteries over and over again. That means less batteries in land fill and more money in your pocket! It is all good! :)

There is also battery recycling too. So once you have used up your single use batteries (as you are replacing them with rechargeable batteries) you can give them to your local recyclers. The local schools often have recycling drives too. Mum and I give my niece and nephew the dead batteries to go to the school for their recycling projects. So its great for them and for us. Not that we have many batteries left any more but now friends pass them on for the kids school too.

I hope this finds you all well.

Love Daena x
