Battery pickup yesterday was a big success!
We picked up from many of you and in total collected over 170 lbs. That is the weight of more than 4 Owens!
More work remains, though, as the City of Seattle is estimated to throw away 36 tons of batteries per year in the garbage according to a 2014 study!
The best way to increase the amount that our community diverts is education on where stuff goes and why it matters. One way to do that is to share Owen’s List with people you think would be interested. You could send them a link, encourage people to follow-us on Facebook, or bring it up in conversation.
Stay tuned to your email for information on another pickup we have planned before the New Year!
