The Battery Can2009-12-16 13:58 - 0 Comments
The Problem: Our world is being contaminated by many things. One of them is batteries. Batteries contain heavy metals such as mercury, lead, cadmium, and nickel, which can contaminate the environment when batteries are improperly disposed. Batteries may produce potential problems or hazards like pollute the lakes and streams as the metals vaporize into the air when burned. Also expose the environment and water to lead and acid and more.Solution: I invented “The Battery Can”. This “Battery Can” can be used by adults, but it is much more fun for kids!! The solution would be that all children may bring their batteries and put them on my “Battery Can”. Teach them the habit of recycling. I think instead of contaminating the world we can help the planet in a fun way. This is a special container were it would be safe to place batteries and later be recycle.
How it will change the behavior: It will change the behavior by learning or getting the habit of recycling. It would also change the behavior that everyone would have fun while the “Battery Can” is getting full of batteries. The “Battery Can” would have the shape of a battery with a picture of a man. The man would get stronger and stronger when people put their batteries in the “Battery Can”. While the man gets one place of his body stronger a song will be played in the “Battery Can”. People would be happy at making the man stronger and making the world a better planet.
