TAKE THAT OLD CELL PHONE, DIGITAL CAMERA, PDA AND LAPTOP OUT OF RETIREMENT AND PUT IT TO WORK!Please donate your used cell phones, digital cameras, PDA’s and laptops to help raise much needed funds for SCValleyMommies.com. SCValleyMommies.com is collecting used cell phones, digital cameras, PDA’s and laptops on June 8th. We will receive a monetary donation for each piece that we collect during this Fund-Raising Program.
According to a new study by environmental research group Inform, people in the US will soon be getting rid of about 130 million cell phones each year. “That’s about 65,000 tons of cell phones and ultimately they are thrown away,” says Joanna Underwood, spokesperson for Inform. Cell phones, digital cameras, PDA’s and laptops contain toxic materials such as arsenic, lead and zinc.
Electronics donated through the Phone Fund Program, however, are given new life. Your throw-away phones, digital cameras, PDA’s and laptops are desirable to people living in developing nations. Phone Fund makes your unused technology available to those who can use it, while keeping it out of the landfill. Those items that cannot be resold are recycled for their component parts according to EPA standards.
“We’re very excited about this program”. “This recycling program not only benefits SCValleyMommies.com but assists in preserving the environment and bringing communications to people who could not otherwise afford it.”
All cell phones, digital cameras, PDA’s and laptops are accepted. Please donate at the following location and date:
