—The following press release was originally published by BBCo for its Canadian launch on April 4, 2022.

 

Better Battery Co. (BBCo) announces the launch of its company in Canada. The company offers the first and only certified carbon-neutral battery, designed to lessen the harmful environmental impact of improperly discarded batteries. Operating with a direct-to-consumer subscription model or a onetime purchase, Better Battery Co. is reinventing the battery category for the better by turning a traditionally wasteful product into a conscious-living accomplice.

Better Battery Co. was founded to challenge the status quo and rethink an everyday product in a new way—providing a vehicle for eco-conscious living through innovation. Better Battery Co. offers carbon neutral batteries that give back and can be easily recycled through an innovative and integrated recycling program. The company completely removes the guesswork from properly disposing of depleted batteries and provides positive power.

“We’re excited to help make the world a greener place,” said Founder Greg Bell. “There are so many small steps consumers can take to minimize their carbon footprint day after day and using a carbon neutral battery is a positive step in the right direction.”

Better Battery Co. is proud to be a member of 1% for the Planet as well as the Amazon Climate Pledge Friendly and Launchpad Programs. Having won several accolades to date as well as already having a robust customer base in the US, Better Battery Co. is trending to disrupt the battery market in the best way possible.

Better Battery Co. was created with the intention of offering consumers a ‘better’ way to engage with a household commodity, alkaline batteries.

For BBCo, “better” encapsulates all aspects of our business model, from their product offering, packaging design, manufacturing process, mode of delivery, and product end of life management; all with the aim, of doing better for our environment.

Better value: Better Battery Co. wants to provide consumers with an easy way to make better purchasing choices for their family and the environment, and BBCo does not believe that price should present as a barrier to choosing a more sustainable product. They have also cut out the middleman to bring their batteries directly to customers, eliminating retail markups so they can offer their batteries at competitive prices.

Better (or equal performance); choosing a more sustainable battery shouldn’t compromise performance; ever. BBCo has partnered with a reputable manufacturer and has completed rigorous 3rd party testing to confirm that Better Battery batteries perform equal to, or better than, the leading national brands in terms of power and longevity.

And the final “better”: better disposal. It’s no secret that the planet is in crisis; and in addition to consumers needing to make conscious decisions and steps towards a more sustainable future; Better Battery Co. believes that the onus is on companies to stive towards a circular economy and offer customers a simple and convenient option for managing the end of life of their product, whether it be through recycling, upcycling, or safe disposal. BBCo has partnered with Raw Materials Company Inc. a leader in consumer battery recycling, to ensure that their batteries stay out of the landfill and are recycled properly. With global battery consumption in the billions of cells annually, it is staggering to report that only 5% of batteries are properly recycled, which is why BBCo has created a seamless integrated recycling process, where they provide their customers a shipping label and cover the costs to recycle.
