Using mobile phone recycling to help earthquake victims
A few enterprising students in Japan have decided to use mobile phone recycling as a way to rebuild their school after the damage from last year’s earthquake. The students have gone around collecting old mobile phones from recycling centres and landfills. They have then turned them into a recycling place that will pay them for the mobile phone recycling.
An initiative such as this makes you think about what you can do for your country or a charity of your choice. If you have old mobile phones hanging around at home gathering dust you could turn them into a tool to help someone else in need. All you have to do is go online and find a mobile phone recycling website that will give you a good deal for your old phone. The company will do the rest by providing you with the funds worthy of the phone you turned in.
From there you can take the cheque and make certain to pass it out to the person, charity, or country you think needs it the most. You could also start you own campaign such as those in Japan by asking others for their old mobile phones, turning them in to the mobile phone recycling centre and then turning the funds over to the charity of your choice. Giving back is just as important as what you may have received for help in the past. What you do with the money from your own mobile phone recycled is up to you, but helping someone else is definitely noble.
