April 22 marks the thirty-ninth annual celebration of Earth Day. Founded in 1970 by U.S. Senator Gaylord Nelson, Earth Day is now observed around the world. For the last forty years, Earth Day celebrations have served as a yearly reminder that we can each make a difference. In fact, little changes can make a huge difference.

Accordingly, Solar Wholesale will demonstrate their kid's solar charger and car at Boulder EarthFest on April 18th, and at Blue Mountain Boulder Elementary School in Longmont on April 22nd, the Earth Day. This product provides an excellent tool to allow age 8 and above children easily integrate rechargeable batteries into their daily lives, help them to start on a life-long habit of responsible battery use.

With more and more devices in our daily lives requiring battery power (toys, remote control, mobile phones, etc.), encouraging our children to use rechargeable batteries will yield benefits all their lives … environmental benefits and financial benefits.

For example, according to current prices at a well known national retailer, four rechargeable NiMH AA batteries cost about $11 and can be recharged up to 1000 times each. Replacing the equivalent of 1000 AA dry cell batteries, at approximately $6.00 per 4-pack would save an astounding $1489. Imagine how much waste you would generate by dumping 1000 AA dry cells compared to only four AA rechargeable.

And now, companies like Solar Wholesale of Superior, Colorado offer this low cost kid's solar charger in the form of a toy car that allows children age 8 + years to play and capture the power of the sun to keep those rechargeable batteries ready to use with free solar power.

With the environment becoming an increasingly important topic and our current economy at its lowest point in years, it makes sense to teach our children (and ourselves) the benefits to both the environment and our wallets of using rechargeable batteries powered by free solar energy.

As Lily Zhu, the founder of Solar Wholesale remarked, "Using a kid's solar charger is environmental and financial friendly for every family."

Solar Wholesale is a Superior, Colorado based company that distributes innovative solar powered products such as SunPlug chargers, solar outdoor gear, garden decoration and educational kits.
