Caring about the Environment Matters!


Batteries - The average household uses 21 batteries a year

Most batteries contain heavy metals, which can contribute to soil and water pollution and endanger wildlife. In the UK alone, the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) says around 600 million batteries (22,000 tonnes) - the equivalent weight of 110 Jumbo Jets - are disposed of annually by UK consumers.

 

Pedalite products are Battery Free

Pedalite Products are completely battery free, harvesting the existing energy from the pedals going around and storing this and there is no extra energy required from the rider.  There are no batteries and no electric "recharge unit" eliminating batteries going into landfill (15 billion tonnes of batteries are thrown away each year at present globally) and there is no "recharging" that uses electricity with the resulting carbon emissions, etc.

Transportation

Airplanes cause noise pollution, emit VOCs, are attributed to global warming and the list of environmental challenges caused by airplanes could go on and on....

 

Pedalite Shipping

Pedalite transport, where possible, by ship to keep our carbon footprint as low as possible. We also use video and teleconference facilities whenever possible.

Packing Peanuts

Those little white polystyrene-foam packaging peanuts are nearly ubiquitous in our pack-and-ship culture, but they are no good for the environment, let alone human health. The basic building block of polystyrene is the non-recyclable chemical compound styrene. Chronic exposure to styrene is associated with central nervous system damage as well as skin, eye and respiratory irritation, depression, fatigue and compromised kidney function.

 

Pedalite Peanuts

On the rare occasions that Pedalite International have to ship any goods that require packaging peanuts or similar packing additions, we always use:

Flo-Pack Bio

Free flowing, bio degradable cushioning material

ROHS

The RoHS Directive stands for "the restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment".  This Directive bans the placing on the EU market of new electrical and electronic equipment containing more than agreed levels of lead, cadmium, mercury, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyl (PBB) and polybrominated diphenyl ether (PBDE) flame retardants.

 

Pedalite ROHS

Pedalite International and our appointed manufacturers do not use any of the materials listed opposite and therefore Pedalite products are RoHS compliant.

Plastic and Wood Packaging

The UK alone produces over 10 million tonnes of waste Plastic packaging each year filling landfill sites. New paper and card packaging costs trees!

 

 

Pedalite Packaging

The packaging is made predominantly from recycled paper and there is no plastic. All packaging can be recycled again.   The Pedalite 360 degree visibility pedal lights have long life LEDs with a life of 100,000 hours that are not replaceable nor should they need replacing thus eliminating spent light bulbs being disposed of in landfill.
