Now On Sale: The First AA Batteries Made Out Of Old Batteries

By Ariel Schwartz

Every time I get rid of used batteries, I have a tinge of guilt. I know that they're recycled, but they don't get remade as new batteries—their value isn't retained. That's finally starting to change.

Energizer announced this week that it's unveiling the EcoAdvanced, the world's first AA battery that's made out of recycled batteries. The EcoAdvanced isn't entirely recycled; just 4% of its contents are made from old alkaline batteries. But it's more than has ever been done before.
