Women recycle phones

Women of the ELCA, one of 128 organizations that are part of the Women’s Funding Network, and in association with the Good Deed Foundation, has joined in an attempt to recycle cell phones.

Two-thirds of the revenue received from the drive will be invested in programs to build women’s financial assets, job opportunities, skills and entrepreneurship.

The Good Deed Foundation says recycling 1 million cell phones reduces greenhouse gas emissions equal to taking 1,368 cars off the road for one year.
