Why is Konus talking about rechargeable batteries today? Simple, because we are the official GP Battery distributors of this product in the armory sector. We have been collaborating with this giant born in Sweden in 1985 for many years, of which we have been distributing various products since 2012. Since last year we have begun to take an interest in their policies aimed at the environment and also incorporated rechargeable batteries into the range of products marketed.
By now it is clear that ignoring climate change, unsustainable behavior and consumption only leads to irreparable consequences and therefore we wanted to actively participate in the revolution that GP is promoting. By including items from the ReCyko line in our assortment, we are taking a stand for a green future by also offering a solution to energy waste.
If you too believe that the environmental policies in place are not enough, if you feel frustrated because it seems impossible to make a difference in everyday life, know instead that there is a contribution you can make: it’s called GP ReCyko.
Here are some data to think about: 66% of global consumers are willing to pay more if a product is sustainable, 81% of European consumers choose products with plastic-free packaging, interest in “plastic waste” on Google has quadrupled since 2016, 50% of people concerned plan to use rechargeable batteries, 54% prefer rechargeable batteries to disposables. As you can see, there are all the signs that the time is ripe, GP, which is among the top 3 brands in the battery category, was ready to give an answer to what the market is asking for and we at Konus make sure that this product is at on hand in your trusted armory.
GP Batteries’ green journey began in the 1990s with the launch of the NiMH rechargeable battery and over time it has become the largest NiMH battery manufacturer globally and the first brand to use 100% paper packaging for it. type of batteries.
If we think back to the past, at the beginning of the new millennium rechargeable batteries made a strong impact on consumer choices, decreeing the end of disposable batteries, then around 2010 there was a sort of decline in interest but the last 2- 3 years show us that rechargeable is returning to the market stronger than ever. From 2019 to today, GP has increased the sales of these items, consequently decreasing the production of disposable batteries.
These are the batteries of the future and we are convinced that the transition to rechargeable will have to take place on a large scale. It is curious to know that if everyone changed from disposable to rechargeable batteries, the positive result would be exceptional. Considering Sweden alone the carbon footprint would decrease by 6700 tonnes every year, this is equivalent to 1000 car trips around the world.
