Chickens for phones

Dunno about you, but I’ve got a spare useless mobile phone sitting at home doing nothing. It’s a Nokia 6100 that I got in 2004, then donated to Isaac when I got the 6230i, and he’s just recently upgraded to my less-old 6230i now I’ve got an N95.

The 6100’s buttons are hopeless these days, and it’s time to say goodbye.

Happily, until the end of December, the MobileMuster people will donate a chicken to Oxfam for each old phone recycled, if you print the special Reply Paid label off their web site.

Anybody else got old phones to get rid of?

I tried printing off the Reply Paid label this morning and got an error message.
I’ll try later.

Hi Daniel, You can also donate your phone to Melbourne Zoo, where it will be sent off to be recycled to protect the Lowland gorillas. Aprently the Metal Coltan that is used in mobile phones is only found where the Gorillas are, so they are being driven away and killed.. So there is lots of ways to help the environment with your old phone. Astrid
