Venom Power Eco Alkaline™ batteries feature 0% Mercury, 0% Cadmium, 0% Lead and are certified carbon neutral by Carbonfund.org. Venom's Eco Alkaline batteries are progressive, high quality consumer batteries with performance rivaling national leading alkaline battery brands.
"Today's consumers are more aware of the global warming and environmental impact of the products they use every day. Consumers are choosing Earth-friendly, sustainable products or those that reduce environmental impact over traditional alternatives," says Clint Bower, President, Venom Group International.
Working with Carbonfund.org, which has the first carbon neutral product label in the U.S., Venom Power Eco Alkaline batteries are certified carbon neutral after a detailed product life-cycle assessment of carbon emissions, and offsetting the emissions that could not be avoided, for example, in the manufacturing process.
Venom is supporting Carbonfund.org and Paso Pacifico's Return to Forest reforestation project. Validated by the Rainforest Alliance to the Climate, Community and Biodiversity Standards with Gold Distinction, the Return to Forest Project is helping to reforest as well as reconnect critical biological corridors along Nicaragua's Pacific coast. The project also brings economic opportunities to local communities while sequestering about 170,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
"We applaud Venom Power for having its Eco Alkaline brand batteries certified as a carbon neutral product after a rigorous product life-cycle assessment. The brand now carries Carbonfund.org's carbon neutral label and joins other distinguished brands that are taking leadership on climate change," said Eric Carlson, President, Carbonfund.org. "Venom's Eco Alkaline batteries provide an important and dependable alternative for consumers in the battery market."
Venom's Eco Alkaline batteries will begin shipping to retailers throughout North America during the fourth quarter this year. Eco Alkaline batteries are recyclable along with other dry-cell batteries.
