Chapter I: Introduction

I. Background of the Study
Do you have like 500 unused sacks of potatoes and don’t know what to do with it? Does your low class battery always die out on you at the exact moment you look at the last digit of you clock? If you answered yes, then here is the solution to your problem! Potato batteries are designed for you! So why do you spend so much money in buying new batteries for your digital clock if you can use the alternative resource. II. Statement of the Problem

A. General Objective
Spending all your money to buy battery is such a waste. If the battery ran out, we just throw it anywhere and buy a new one again. We are just going to add toxic wastes, substances and chemicals in our community. Why don’t you buy potatoes as an alternative battery?

B. Specific Objective
To lessen the increasing number of toxics and promote the 3R’s: reducing, recycling and reusing. III. Significance of the Study
Potatoes are less expensive and a biodegradable material. We use the potato as an alternative battery instead of the batteries that we can buy in stores so that we can lessen the number of non-biodegradable materials as well as the increasing number of toxic wastes or substances or chemicals. Some possible effects are promotion in recycling, reducing and reusing materials and applying our talents in creativity in inventing new inventions considering new strategies, new solutions and new possibilities.
