Yesterday Summer brought us a way to make a little green while being green. Now that’s a great way to get rid of any electronic that you might have, however, wouldn’t it be great to help someone instead?
Even if you can’t support the current war, all of us can agree to support the troops over there. There need not be common ground on the battle for you to show the members of the U.S. military some gratitude. Are you upgrading your phone this year? I just got the Samsung Focus Windows Phone 7. I need to transfer some numbers but then I’ll recycle my old phone for free through Operation Gratitude. Through GRC Wireless Recycling, Operation Gratitude will earn 50¢ – $30 per phone with which to purchase care packages such as food, toiletries, and entertainment items to send to service members in harm’s way. GRC recycles cell phones through an environmentally responsible, zero landfill process by either reusing phones as refurbished products or literally recycling them by scrapping them for the metals.
Now Summer, I need you to tell all of us how to not be lazy. I’m terrible about cell phones. We have 3 or 4 that we just let the kids play with. I’m sure if someone somewhere had a charger half of them would still work.
