Ok today I have just a simple thing to share and you all probably think about this anyway but I almost blew it yesterday. I am one of those people who chew through electronics especially wireless phones.
They don't last more than a year for me and then the battery just won't hold a charge anymore. I had decided to get a new one and was about to throw this miserable hunk of junk in the trash when it occurred to me that it contained a re-chargeable battery. Now I am careful about all the other batteries I have but when a battery is hidden like this one it is easy in the rush of the day to just chuck the whole thing in the trash bag. Well because of this Project I have been a little more aware about what I am doing the last few days and just as I was aiming for the trash bin I stopped and a light bulb went off in my head! The Battery!!! It's easy to unhitch from it's mooring and now it can go in the box I keep for old batteries. Luckily for me a number of local stores do have bins for old batteries so disposal is not a problem. Have a great Styrofoam-free day...:)
