Instead of throwing used batteries away, they should be recycled. I use a Ziploc bag and hang it from one of the keyhooks in our kitchen. Once the bag is full, we take them to our local hazardous waste facility for recycling. You can recycle cell phone batteries, alkaline batteries, etc. this way.
This also works for recycling plastic bottle caps. Most salons that carry Aveda products will take plastic bottle caps to be recycled. Check www.aveda.com for a salon near you. Then save the caps in Ziploc bags to take to salon when full. They take shampoo, salad dressing, milk jug caps, etc.
I found out that grocery stores prey on people stopping at the grocery store for say milk and eggs. Have you ever noticed the milk section is at the back of the store so you have to go down at least one isle to get to the milk.
This is so you will see the end caps and see maybe one thing on sale like say spaghetti sauce, but there will also be mushrooms, garlic bread and pasta on the end cap. The customer then thinks that would be good for dinner and buys all of those items and only really saved on the spaghetti sauce.
