In case you haven't already, mark your calendars every year on April 22, for that is the day that we celebrate Earth Day! Today, citizens of Earth spread the news of supporting the environment through various means, from waste reduction to recycling tips.

If you're still using disposable batteries, try investing in a set of rechargeable batteries and a charger! We even have our own section specifically for rechargeable household batteries. Reducing the number of disposable batteries around the world will cut back on various types of waste that are harmful to our environment.

Check out the link here in case you're in need of rechargeable AA or AAA batteries - and spread the word, not just of us, but also of Earth Day! Make saving the world a regular part of your schedule and society, and not just a helpful holiday.

 



USPS Restricts Mailing of Lithium Batteries

clock June 1, 2012 22:41 by author Jeremy

As of May 16, 2012, USPS has changed part of their mailing rules and standards. Lithium batteries and cells (both rechargeable and non-rechargeable) are now not allowed to be shipped internationally or to any APO, FPO,  and DPO locations. This means that mailers also cannot send out products that have lithium batteries inside of them, including tech gadgets such as cell phones, MP3 players, laptops, and digital camera.

After January 1, 2013, limited quantities may be allowed to ship out internationally, as long as "the batteries are properly installed in the personal electronic devices they are intended to operate."

This does not affect the current rules for mailing lithium products within the United States, and lithium batteries (and their corresponding technical products) may still be shipped out normally. However, for international shipping, mailers may have to resort to private carriers such as FedEx.
