Got An Old Cell Phone?


The Body Shop National Cell Phone Collection is collecting used cell phones to stop family violence. Donated phones will be sold, refurbished, or recycled, with proceeds benefiting the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence and the Wireless Foundation.
You can drop off your old phones at any of The Body Shop stores through August 31, 2005. Even better? Click here to learn how to start your own collection.

    WOW! Um, exactly how much of the profits from reselling these phones will be donated? Every phone in the US is supposed to connect with 911 “as is”in spite of any active service. How are unuseable donated phones disposed of?

    Despite the fact that this article is over 3 years old, I have to say few words about it. First of all we must make more programs like that and donate more cell phones, not only for recycling, but for other reasons too. We can donate our cell phones for poor people for example. I am sure that everyone has some old phones laying in the desk. So donate your old phone and tell your friend to do that. Thanks for the interesting article. I will be looking forward to other great ones from you in the future.
