Involve Your School
Our program to protect the last of the Mountain Gorillas has been funded largely by the recycling of old mobile phones.
This is a two way benefit as Coltan, the mineral necessary for mobile phones is mined in Mountain Gorilla habitat, so the more Coltan we can recycle, the less habitat is denuded by intrusive mining and we receive up to $5 for every returned phone, which goes immediately to the Congo to pay the wages of the anti-poaching patrols that help protect the last of these magnificent creatures.
Many students and some schools have offered to distribute the bags to the students. Each satchel can take up to 4 phones and simply need to be placed in a street postal box or given to any Post Office, there is absolutely no charge to the school or the students. All information on the phone is stripped on arrival and they will be completely broken down and all materials reused.
If you are a student or teacher and would like to register your school, download the registration form and send it to us or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information
