Cell Phone Recycling

Yesterday was my birthday....and J got me a pay as you go cell phone. If you read my blog at all, you probably know I am not a big cell phone person. Never had one before yesterday and really don't like how the industry is handled in the US so much so, that I vowed if I ever got one for emergencies, it would be a pay as you go phone.

The thing that I found very interesting about my phone was this little bag that was included in the box to recycle cell phones with. The one I had is part of a program Motorola has. There is a link to their site on the title or here. Anyhow, I like anything that has to do with recycling and I thought it was awesome that they included a postage paid bag that you could use to recycle up to three phones in and it didn't matter if they had batteries or what brand they cool is that?

Anyhow, I guess from the website above, you can get postage for free to recycle your old phones too, in case you don't already have one of these handy bags. I recommend doing so, since I read in an article not too long ago that people are filling up landfills with these little non-biodegradable castoffs and it seems to me that recycling them makes so much more sense.

I hope you had a great b-day.

I am of the cell phoneless myself but that is an excellent idea with the recycling.

Happy belated Birthday!!!! I hope you had a good one.

I recycle my cell phones by donating them to an organization that wipes the memory and gives them to women in domestic violence situations. I like that Motorola is giving people a recycling option.

That is nice to know Mishka - I hope you got my message on your B'Day - I hope you had a fun one!

Yes, I did get your message, and thanks so much. It was really awesome. I had one from Dad right after I got the full meal deal when we got in.

Love you Mom.

Happy birthday! (Belated) I am on pay as you go. It is so much cheaper and easier than the other method, although I did run out of time once on an important call and that was dumb of me. :) (I was extending my flexcar reservation so it was important in that sense, not like a work call). I still can't convince myself to go with the contract option.
