One of my father's first jobs after he got married was working for a brief time at Ray-O-Vac batteries. My mom says he would come home covered in graphite that would not wash out of his clothes. The graphite got everywhere.


Interesting Washington Post article on pollution from graphite mines in China where its used it to make batteries. https://www.washingtonpost.com/graphics/business/batteries/graphite-mining-pollution-in-china/
