The Problem

We wish people will come and learn about what is in their electronics, inspire people to reduce and reuse electronics, and understand the connection of all this to chimpanzee conservation.

Our Plan

We are hosting a workshop at Barnes and Noble on June 30th from 12-4. At the workshop we will dissect mobile phones and identify the metals inside them, have a discussion about where these metals came from and why they are important to recycle, and introduce the idea of Fairphone Smartphones and Fair Trade Electronics. We are raising awareness of ape conservation and fundraising for Camp Friendship's annual summer retreat to Maine.
