Recycling mobile phones – every little action helps

Do you want to sell your mobile? Want to do it in such a way that it gets recycled and helps the environment? Well the good news is that it couldn’t be easier. You don’t have to write up an advert for Gumtree or any of the other free ads sites or publications. No waiting, no messing around. And you get to do the environment a favour too. All you need to do is logon on to a website where you can get a quote to sell your mobile phone instantly. If you are happy with the price given, just confirm and you are well on your way to getting cash for your handset. If you agree to the quote along with the terms and conditions, a prepaid envelope is dispatched to you so you can send your mobile back. Simple. Mobile phone recycling is booming. It’s no real surprise. The pace of handset development is staggering and we all want the latest phones with the newest features. We hang onto our mobiles for the lifetime of the contract, and then we want another one. Which is fine, along as we are prepared to dispose of our old handset properly. It’s no good just chucking them out. They contain harmful and toxic elements, not to mention useful materials that can be used over and over. Mobile phone recycling makes our addiction to the newest and latest a little more acceptable. You can update without being extravagant and wasteful with the earth’s resources. We all have to do our bit now. It might be a small gesture, but if we all contribute in our own small way we can help to make a real difference. So next time you see that shiny new phone in the shop window, stop and think what happens to your old one. This way you can get paid to help the planet and have a new handset. SABUNG AYAM
