As more and more of us are becoming conscious of our ecological footprint, we’re all looking for ways to cut back on our environment impact. While most of our contemporary devices still require a charge to get the job done (our phones, computers and cars still have batteries, after all), gone are the days of stockpiling the little man-made toxic tubes of chemicals that make all of our things “go” and end up leaking cadmium and nickel into the soil under the landfill where they end up.
