And I thought I was just being cheap

I was checking out one of my new favorite websites: TheDailyGreen.Com and I read an article about rechargeable batteries. Here is an excerpt:

Save money and resources by using widely available rechargeable batteries, many of which can be reused up to 1,000 times.

More than 15 billion batteries are thrown away each year — enough to make a column to the moon and back. That number continues to grow, as we use more and more electronic devices in our lives.

I use rechargeable batteries in my camera. Originally, I bought them because my camera sucks batteries dry in a matter of days and I was tired of having to buy batteries all of the time. I thought that I was being cheap, but really I was being green and just didn't know it!

I love rechargeable batteries because they last a long time and they save me money! I can charge the batteries at an outlet or in my car, so I don't have an excuse for them dying.

I have the energizer ones, in case you were wondering.

GO GREEN!
