- Tech Fact of the Day: Batteries can have a devastating effect on the environment. They contain heavy metals that, when handled or disposed of improperly, leak into the soil and can contaminate the water. As you may have seen in the BikeAbout Sponsor & Partners list, we are equipped with digital cameras from Casio to visualize our experiences and impressions. We are working very hard to document our journey (andrEa and Corinne are addicted to pictures). The cameras are fantastic in terms of quality and ease of handling. But, like many portable objects, they require lots of batteries. We are attempting to solve two problems presented by the batteries: (1) proper disposal, (2) finding a power source so that we do not have to rely on batteries at all.
