Eco Alkalines™ and Grainger Team Up to Promote Carbonfree® Batteries
Tuesday, 6 August 2013
LEI Electronics and Eco Alkalines™ Batteries are pleased to announce their latest launch with W.W. Grainger, Inc. (Grainger), a Chicago-based Fortune 500 company that shares the Eco Alkalines ™ vision for creating and supplying sustainable businesses and communities.
Grainger is committed to environmental stewardship in their operations and are dedicated to being a leader in sustainability. In addition to operating Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certified facilities and working with the U.S. Green Building Council, Grainger is the first industrial distributor to publically disclose their carbon footprint through the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP).
Like Grainger, Eco Alkalines™ batteries are committed to environmental sustainability and green innovation. Eco-Alkalines™ batteries are environmentally friendly and landfill safe. They are manufactured with earth friendly derivatives and contain 0% trace amounts of harmful metals such as Mercury, Cadmium and Lead.
Eco Alkalines™ batteries have been certified Carbonfree® by Carbonfund.org Foundation and NSF Sustainability for the past three years. This program requires that the batteries’ complete cradle-to-grave life cycle is analyzed, the per-unit carbon emissions is determined then neutralized for each battery unit sold. In addition to neutralizing life cycle carbon footprints, the batteries continue to meet and exceed some of the most important international standards such as PAS 2050 (carbon label standard) and ISO 14044 (life cycle assessment standard), and they can be used to count towards prerequisites and credits in LEED certified building projects and building operation.
In addition to their innovative and unique green credentials and applications, Eco Alkalines™ perform equal to or better than the leading national brands in performance and longevity tests. Eco Alkalines™ have a guaranteed 5-year shelf life and a unique patented leak resistant seal ensuring that they will not leak into your devices.
Despite their pioneering eco accolades and novel technology, Eco Alkalines™ batteries are competitively priced compared to the leading national brands. As eco-friendly technology evolves to a ‘must’ rather than a choice, Eco Alkalines™ does not believe that consumers and companies should have to pay a premium for a green product.
Eco Alkalines™ is a great choice for environmentally-conscious consumers, as the brand continues to create an environmental awareness with a message of its commitment to reduced world-wide carbon emissions and its suggestion to use recycled material and recycle when and where possible. Customers can purchase Eco Alkalines™ batteries and other green products through a retail branch, in the 2013 Grainger catalog or on www.grainger.com and www.acklandsgrainger.com.
