Join the Go for Zero campaign!
Australians are holding onto a staggering 4.2 million old phones that are broken and no longer working. They represent a stockpile of valuable materials and metals that can be reclaimed through recycling.
We mine precious metals at an enormous cost and they are an essential part of electronics. However, these supplies won’t last forever which means recovering what we can from our old devices is critical. If we recycle those 4.2 million broken mobiles, we can prevent over 8,000 tonnes of mineral resources from being mined, with saved carbon emissions equivalent to planting 42,000 trees.
So, this month we are asking everyone to join MobileMuster’s nationwide challenge to Go for Zero. All you need to do is look in the bottom drawer, search the study or even sort out the garage. Simply find those old mobile phones and accessories and recycle them via your local Australia Post outlet or your local WP store!
