I was just browsing through one of my links below, Earth Share,and they reminded me that you can recycle your used cell phones. I remember reading that a while back, but completely forgot about it.
You see, I always keep my last model phone in my closet because you never know when your current one will be lost, stolen, or just stop working. And let me tell you, it came in handy for my husband, Branndon, when he thought his phone was stolen. Luckily it was just misplaced, but at least he had a phone for the few weeks his was hiding.
But I love the idea of being able to recycle them when I have no more use for them. Especially with Branndon planning on getting an iPhone in the few months.
So when I was browsing through their website I saw that Earth Share teamed up with CollectiveGood. Basically send your used phones, pagers, PDAs and accessories to Collective Good, you can click here, then they will send a donation to Earth Share. Isn't that simple.
CollectiveGood partners with charities and companies to maximize cell phone recycling by making donations everytime a phone is recycled. They also try to limit the environmental impact with the recycling as well as disposal of non-functional cell phones in accordance with locan and national environmental standards, and provides affordable modern communications to citizens in the developing world.
