"I will buy rechargeable batteries instead of disposables whenever possible until the end of 2008 but only if 10 other people will do the same."

All batteries contain chemicals that are bad for the environment, and I feel bad every time I throw away a flat battery. I always intend to use rechargeable batteries next time, but never seem to actually get round to it; it always just seems easier to use disposables again.
I want to get into the habit of using rechargeable batteries: having enough of them to start with, remembering to charge them when needed, and choosing them instead of disposables whenever there is a choice.
If I really try throughout 2008 then perhaps it will stick for the future. Longer term, it is bound to save me money too!
