After Black Friday, Celebrate Green Saturday

November 21st, 2011 by

For serious holiday shoppers, Thanksgiving has been followed by Black Friday, the kick-start for the holiday shopping season. Interstate Batteries now introduces “Green Saturday” to that weekend.

Shoppers can “go green” with their shopping on Green Saturday, Nov. 26, by bringing in old batteries to participating Interstate All Battery Centers for proper recycling. Customers who return old batteries on Green Saturday will have a donation made in their honor to Toys for Tots. In addition, participants receive a 30 percent discount on any new rechargeable products that day for all those new electronic gifts bought on Black Friday.

“Reaching out to our communities is an important part of what we do at Interstate Batteries, especially during the holiday season,” said Scott Miller, Interstate All Battery Center senior vice president. “Recycling is also an important part of what we do, and we are bringing those two missions together with Green Saturday.”

Interstate Batteries is the No. 1 automotive battery recycler in the U.S., recycling more than 850 million pounds of batteries last year alone. Interstate takes great care in handling the disposal of lead-acid batteries, which is strictly regulated by federal and state legislation, in an environmentally friendly way.

“It is important for all of us to be environmentally friendly when disposing of old batteries,” Miller said. “Green Saturday provides a convenient opportunity for our customers to focus on a single day for recycling old batteries and, at the same time, help put a smile on the face of a kid through the wonderful work our friends at Toys for Tots are doing across America.”

Interstate Batteries Green Saturday provides resources to Toys for Tots to help less fortunate children throughout the United States experience the joy of the holiday season.
