December 5, 2023
USB-C Rechargeable Li-ion batteries set to launch in 35 key REI retailers
Park City, UTAH (December 5, 2023)/OUTDOOR SPORTSWIRE/ – Paleblue, the Park City-based startup creating sustainable, rechargeable alternatives to disposable alkaline batteries, announced a partnership with REI today. The partnership will see Paleblue’s industry-leading rechargeable batteries and solar chargers available for purchase in 35 REI stores across the country.
“This partnership represents a major step forward for Paleblue, especially considering the close alignment of our ethos and values,” said Tom Bishop, Co-Founder and CEO of Paleblue. “REI is the leading outdoor retailer here in the States, so we have an opportunity to continue growing awareness around high-quality rechargeable batteries and the solutions they offer for a major sustainability issue that’s largely overlooked at present.”
Americans throw away over 10 million single-use alkaline batteries every day. Rechargeable batteries could save more than 126,350 metric tons of batteries from filling our landfills each year. By stocking Paleblue batteries, REI continues to uplift sustainability causes throughout the outdoor industry.
In addition to REI, outdoor enthusiasts, tech-savvy workers, photographers, and all consumers can find Paleblue products at True Value stores nationwide and at www.paleblueearth.com.
