Thinking green every step of the way.
Our commitment to environmental responsibility is a fundamental element of the NorthStar Group business philosophy. Our focus on sustainability and reduced environmental impact is one of the main factors that sets us apart from the competition.
We understand that damaging our ecosystem is not good for the future of our children or our business. That's why we believe it is so important to reduce the environmental impact of our products. Every step of our process has been improved with this in mind.
Yes, lead can be a dangerous material, for both people and the environment, and it needs to be handled very carefully, which we do. But lead is great to use because it has the highest recycling rate of any material: over 95% compared to 38% for glass bottles. Over half of the lead produced and used each year worldwide has been used before in other products.
AGM lead-acid batteries like ours are also safer for the environment, and safer to use, than flooded batteries because there is no chance for dangerous leakage.
