Everyone says they're going green these days, but I often wonder how many people are really making an effort to help out mother nature. A recent study performed by iSupply Corp., found that less than ten percent of people who upgraded their phones recycled their old handsets. Additionally, ten percent of people sporting a new cell just tossed their old ones in the dumpster, which equals about 125 million discarded phones a year!
Needless to say, leaving last season's phone for the garbage man to pick-up is bad for the environment, causing mercury and lead to make its way into groundwater. Find out where to drop off your unwanted phones and then tell me, do you recycle your old cell phones?
