It might be a surprise to learn that the UK throws away over 20,000 tonnes of batteries each year. Heavy metals in these can turn toxic and seep into the environment, damaging our great outdoors. So what can be done? The world’s number one rechargeable battery manufacture, GP Batteries is challenging the outdoor industry to switch to eco-friendly rechargeable batteries for all outdoor and household tech in order to save the environment. But what are the benefits?
