There are so many things we can do to help reduce or off set our carbon emissions and be kinder to our environment.
Recycle your old mobile phones. It’s a great way to make some extra cash, it helps the environment as your mobile will be restored and then sent on to be reused through different charities. In Spain www.zonzoo.es is a great mobile recycling company working with over 40 charities to recycle and reuse your unwanted mobile phones. Recycling your mobile helps limit the extraction of minerals such as nickel, lithium, cobalt, titanium etc all used in manufacturing mobiles, disposes safely a potentially hazardous waste product and you may even make some money!
