Vodafone, Sienna Miller

Sienna Miller is Global Cool‘s rock star. She’s asked us to turn down our thermostat and wear cool t-shirts. This time she’s back for more – our cell phones.

Global Cool, Vodafone UK and Sienna Miller have teamed up to recycle 500,000 mobile phones. Global Cool tells us, “Over 50 million handsets are currently sitSienna Miller, Global Coolting idle in UK households – and less than 5% of the 15 million that get thrown away each year are recycled. What’s more, the estimated worth of the nation’s old handsets is £1.1 billion – money which could be spent on planet saving projects like Solar Aid, which uses the power of the sun to help people help themselves in hot countries around the world.”

In the UK, recycle your old mobile phones, batteries, and accessories in any Vodafone store or send them free to FREEPOST, Foneback Vodafone Recycling.

    I’m not at all against this recycling, but wouldn’t it be even better to give your phone to a deserving organization like the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence? Organizations like NCADV give unwanted cell phones to domestic violence victims that may encounter emergency situations… just a thought. Check out http://www.ncadv.org/takeaction/DonateaPhone_129.html
