Earth Day is about giving back to the planet, and being more aware of what we do to it, and if you have old iPhones, Apple wants you to be aware of how they can help the planet Earth.
Now that one of the oldest mobile makers has returned to Australia to release new phones, it’s ensuring it gives customers a way to make their old phones do something worthwhile.
What becomes of the broken smartphone? Who has a mobile that has now departed? I know I've got to find, some place to store all mine, help me.
Back in January, MobileMuster teamed up with OzHarvest to convince people to let go of old junk phones. And it worked.We all have a lot of junk in our homes, and there's a good chance much of that junk is electronic thanks to the upgrade cycle many of us have.Take phones, for instance, because with the first mobile car call being made in 1981 and portable phones becoming more and more prevalent in that time mostly from 2000 onwards, there's a solid chance you have a drawer or box somewhere holding onto more devices…
Two Aussie programs are coming together to make one solid idea, and if you can't bring yourself to throw out an old phone, this may give you the right momentum.
What happens to your phone after you're done with it, after you decide to upgrade? Does it collect dust waiting to be used or thrown out, because if it does, your mobile could serve another possibly higher purpose.
