One of the most intriguing products featured at January’s Consumer Electronics Show(CES) in Las Vegas was the new EnviroMAX battery from Fuji. The alkaline battery is being touted as the industries top environmentally friendly disposable battery, leading Fuji to coincide it’s release in the days following the celebration of Earth Day. “We are pleased to introduce Fuji EnviroMAX batteries at a time when people are celebrating Earth Day and looking for easy ways to go green,” said Jeff Kreidenweis, Director of Sales. “EnviroMAX batteries are made from materials that are derived from the basic elements of the Earth. There is nothing inside a Fuji EnviroMAX battery that will harm the environment.”
The measures taken by Fuji to make the EnviroMAX so eco-friendly go well beyond the recyclable materials used to produce the battery. According to our friends at Slippery Brick, the batteries are constructed in plants that operate under the ISO 14001 environment certification, which Fuji says are some of the strictest environmental standards around. Taking it a step further, even the materials used to package the EnviroMAX are said to be either recyclable or made out of recycled material.
Many would argue that rechargeable batteries are the way to go when it comes to going green with your power. However, if you’re more keen to disposable batteries than finding a product that is environmentally friendly is of the utmost importance to keeping our earth clean and healthy.
