With these three mobiles in front of me, it was therefore very good timing that I received an email from netmums who are appealing for people to hand in their old mobiles to Orange for recycling. Any profits will then go to Kids COmpany who will then help pay for meals for disadvantaged children.
There are an estimated 15 million unused mobiles in the UK, each one worth from £5 to £100+. Orange and T-Mobile are kindly putting any unused phones we can find through their recycling programme. It’s an amazing opportunity to provide nurturing (both food and love) to a child who otherwise will stay hungry.
This website encourages you to take a picture of yourself as you recycle your mobile. I did take a photo but it just shows a very raindrenched hand in front of a blurry store. Trust me, you're not missing anything.
