Program encourages battery recycling versus disposal.

Technology accessory designer, Moshi, has just launched a great new program called IonXchange this past week. The goal is to reduce battery disposal while incentivizing customers to return for a new purchase. The program works like this –

  • Anyone who has an old portable battery of any brand may fill out a form on Moshi’s website. This will generate a pre-paid shipping label. Batteries must be under 2 pounds in weight.
  • When the battery is received and approved for recycling, Moshi will send the participant a 20% off coupon for their next purchase on Moshi.com.

“We understand that customers looking to update to a new portable battery will likely need to discard their current battery,” said Michael Leonhard, President at Moshi. “As part of Moshi’s commitment to environmental stewardship, we created the IonXchange program to provide consumers with an easy, convenient way to properly recycle their old portable batteries – and reward themselves for doing so.”

Moshi is a member of Call2Recycle‘s Industry Steward program, which “helps battery and product manufacturers fulfill recycling requirements in the U.S. and Canada, including compliance with extensive state, provincial and federal regulations, such as the Mercury-Containing and Rechargeable Battery Act (The Battery Act).”

As an Industry Steward, Moshi is dedicated to responsibly recycling all of its portable battery products when they reach the end of their lifecycle. The IonXchange program expands on this commitment by accepting all brands of lithium-ion or lithium polymer batteries (up to 2 lbs.) for recycling.
