Project 1 Phone is here!
This is Globe Telecom‘s biggest e-waste recovery and recycling program to date. Project 1 Phone aims to promote the proper disposal of mobile phones and other e-waste and to educate people about the potential harm that cell phones can do to the environment if not disposed of properly and the significant benefits to recycling an old mobile phone.
As a couple and heads of our family, we enforce proper waste disposal in the household and that includes our gadgets and obsolete phones. We usually drop them off in a nearby mall instead of just dumping it in our storage boxes and left to be forgotten. We also encourage our kids to do the same. We have to do our share in protecting the environment even in the simplest ways.
These are just some of the old phones that we have accrued the past few years which will now go straight to Globe’s Project 1 Phone.
For every phone (working or non-working) or device you donate, you help in building new schools for the children of Aklan in tandem with Habitat for Humanity Philippines which I am also an Online Champion of, together with my husband. You can also donate your old tablets, mp3 players and even chargers. Apart from helping the environment and fellow Filipinos, each donated device entitles you to one raffle entry. A monthly raffle draw will be held and each lucky winner gets an iPad Air!
