Help The Gorillas By Re-Cycling Your Cell Phone

Living Edge is currently participating in a mobile phone recycling program Taronga Zoo is running ‘They’re calling on You’. A rare mineral ore called coltan, found in mobile phones, is mined in Gorilla habitat and this mining is accelerating the decline in Western Lowland Gorilla numbers and at least 10 other African primate species. By simply recycling an old mobile phone, the pressure on gorilla habitat is reduced and money raised from refurbished mobile phones supports conservation projects in Africa. What’s more it’s easy and free and you can do it right now from your desk – here’s the link to the program to recycle yours.
