A tragic white-water rafting accident on the Nanpanjiang River has taken the life of People’s Hemp founder, and eco pioneer, Michael Sutherland. Michael was a tireless innovator and creative promoter of the commercial uses of hemp. His primary passions were: biking, the environment, China, and working toward the deregulation of hemp in the U.S.
I had the distinct pleasure of interviewing Michael a few months ago…

Hemp – building momentum: an interview with Michael Sutherland
If you burn through a ton of AA and AAA batteries in your camera, electronics and toys you should be using recharegeable batteries. You’ll not only save a pile of money but you’ll be doing the environment a world of good by not adding to the tons of carcinogenic batteries we pour into landfills each day.
Pictured above are the Sanyo Eneloop and the UniRoss Hybrio Ni-MH batteries, great options for AA or AAA batteries. These rechargeable batteries are ideal for high drainage devices; due to their low discharge rates, they can be recharged hundreds of times, have a high mAh (number of hours they’ll hold a charge), they charge on most standard and fast chargers designed for Ni-MH batteries, and they’re fully recyclable.
You should be able to get these AA rechargeable batteries for around $10 a four-pack. Get the Hybrio batteries @ thomas distributing and the Sanyo Eneloops @ amazon.com
Newer tech, 2700 mAH, rechargeables will cost you a little more @ nimhbattery.com or Thomas Distributing (a great battery site) and will last even longer.
