The Problem

Production of cell phone and other electronics uses difficult to obtain resources. When phones are replaced, they are often discarded instead of recycled. Valuable resources, such as coltan, can be salvaged from electronics when people care enough to recycle them.

Our Plan

We will be celebrating and promoting Mobile Recycling Day by being sure to #AnswerTheCall . We will collect old phones and electronics to drop off for recycling. We will learn about coltan, including what it is, where it's from and how it is mined/extracted.
