"Araz" supermarket chain joined the initiative of the Ministry of Ecology and Natural Resources and "Red Hearts" Foundation "Hand over batteries, protect nature"

I recently learned that the "Araz" supermarket chain, which belongs to the Veysaloğlu Group of Companies, where I work, has joined an interesting environmental initiative: about collecting used batteries in special boxes in stores and then destroying them in a special way!

To be honest, until now, I did not have extensive information about the effects of used batteries and the ways of their destruction, and I was not aware of the implementation of initiatives related to this problem in our country.

After seeing these boxes in Araz, I researched this topic and learned that unusable or used batteries pose a threat to the health of people and animals.

If the batteries are not thrown away, toxic substances can enter the human body and cause various diseases.

Used batteries contain harmful substances, and if they are disposed of together with general waste, the heavy metals contained in batteries can leach into soil and water, poisoning people and animals.

This poses a threat to their lives and destroys vegetation.

Currently, battery boxes are placed in 19 branches of "Araz" and "Spar" markets in Baku and Sumgait.

You can also take care of people and nature by joining this initiative.

Below are the addresses of the markets where the boxes for disposal of used batteries are located:
