Green Your Photography: Better Batteries

Camera battery recharger Whether you're a pro or just a weekend shutterbug, photography is an excellent way to get close to nature and share its beauty. This week's tips are about how to make each *click* eco-friendlier.

Tip #1: Recharge

Given the waste problems of traditional batteries, it’s good news that most cameras now come with rechargeable batteries. To keep your device fully charged even during remote backpacking trips, try a solar-powered camera bag or battery pack. If you have to use old-fashioned batteries, dispose of them properly by finding a nearby recycling center.

Tip #2: Choose your camera wisely.

Tip #3: Share photos in smarter ways.

Tip #4: Give old devices a second life.
