Helps Advance Healthcare While Eliminating E-Waste
Pembroke Pines, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/17/2014 -- Mail In Mobile (www.mailinmobile.com) just donated 62 cell phones to the Hope Phones charity, in an innovative way to fund the global efforts of Medic Mobile, an organization that works to advance healthcare in 16 different countries with mobile technology.
Everyone has a mobile device and in the U.S., on average most customers upgrade their device every 18 months. So the question becomes, what happens to their old device? Half a million cell phones are discarded daily within the United States polluting our environment with toxins such as lead, nickel, beryllium, and cadmium. Recycling cell phones through Mail in Mobile, which helps charities such as Hope Phones, reduces hazardous waste within our communities in a responsible manner, while also helping provide a real public health benefit abroad.
“I wanted to make the donation," stated Cairo, "so that we can help connect people in need of medical care with those who can help."
Mail in Mobile buys used cell phones, laptops, mp3 players, and tablets from businesses and individuals and in turn, finds a second home for them keeping those devices away from our already overloaded landfills.
"We’re glad," Cairo further stated, "that there are other organizations out there helping to recycle discarded electronic equipment and making a dent in the e-waste problem facing our planet."
