The gift of recycling

Back on September 14th, I blogged about recycling batteries. Well, today I found out you can give the gift of recycling...including battery recycling. Thanks, Sue Hartman, for sending me this info!

Waste Management offers Green from Home eco-friendly gift ideas for the holidays. For example, for only $16.95, you can purchase a dry cell battery recycling kit and gift someone with the convenience of recycling. The box holds up to 4 lbs. of batteries and includes a postage paid address label so the recipient can ship their used batteries without any inconvenience or expense. How cool is that?

There are also kits for compact fluorescent bulbs, electronics and more. Visit the following link for more information:

This is the greenest gift suggestion I've provided you with this season. So go to the website, order your kits (or gift cards) and bless you loved ones with the gift of green!

Happy shopping!



  1. Hana, I just called IKEA to ask exactly what they recycle in the front of their store (they have a recycling center near the exit.) Here's some GOOD NEWS that you can share on the blog. There are bins for lightbulbs, plastic bags and BATTERIES! No charge to recycle there. :-)

  2. Thanks Heather! I just posted this info as the Green Tip of the Day and gave IKEA a Greeny Award!
