Tip of the Day: How to be a greener photographer

Consider what you buy. It’s hard to resist all the new cameras and accessories, but there are ways to make your gear-lust eco-friendly. Look into renting or buying used equipment (added bonus: you’ll save money). When shopping for new stuff, look for products that are made from recycled products, such as Lowepro’s Terraclime line of bags. http://www.lowepro.com/terraclimeseries . Lastly, travel to the store rather than ordering online, you’ll save on extra packaging, fuel and shipping costs.—Kat
