This Earth Day, Resurrect the Cell Phone Graveyard
Spring: A time of restoring and renewing. A time of plans and projects. A time for spring cleaning. A time when most people want to clean out garages, closets and junk drawers. You know the drawers we're talking about—especially the one that serves as a graveyard of old cell phones and electronics. As springtime arrives, what if you could give new life to those old cell phones? What if you had an easy way to do that? What if recycling phones could help the environment? What if recycling those old phones could help save a life?
Meet Susan, a community healthcare worker from Tsangalaweni, Kenya. With funds raised from our Hope Phones campaign, we were able to equip her with a solar charger to keep her cell phone powered, and better serve her patient community, but that’s not where the story ends.
