Daily Walrus - Helping People Help Animals

New Year, New Cell Phone? | January 1, 2008

New Year – old phones?  Did you get a new cell phone for the holidays?  Chances are you have an old one or two laying around.  Instead of letting them collect dust, recycle them to help animals!  Collective Good Mobile Phone Recylcing offers you an easy way to raise money for various animal orgs.  They recycle/resell the phones and donate the profits to the organization of your choice.  Depending on which group you select, you may have to pay for shipping.  However, if you choose The Humane Society, they will pay the postage costs of your donation (there are numerous other animal groups to choose from too).  You can even search by region to find one close to you.  In addition to cell phones, you can send empty ink cartridges, PDAs, and pagers. 

Check out their About Us page and their FAQs for more info.

While post offices are closed today, you can prepare the package to ship tomorrow.  It is incredibly easy as long as you have a printer.  At the home page click on Donate to take you to this page.  Here you can select your recipient – we chose the Humane Society.  Just click the “Donate” symbol next to the org of your choice to get the necessary forms (packing slip with a barcode).  If you are interested in the HSUS (remember, free shipping), follow this link to their form.  Fill it out, print it, and follow on screen directions to print the free shipping label.  Organize your phones and forms to get ready for shipping.  It’s so easy, even The Walrus’s little brother, Tito, could do it!


Happy New Year from The Walrus!

About author

Hello - we are Jenny and Ryan, a couple living in Brooklyn, New York. We are both busy with school and work but try to take time to do something every day to make the world a better place for animals. Occasionally we may link to outside websites for additional resources, but we do not necessarily endorse all policies of these organizations. Despite the title of our blog, the focus is not only on walruses. So what's with the title? We named this blog after our cat, Wally, aka The Walrus. We are the proud parents of two cats (Wally and Tito) and one dog (Luigi).
