It is fair to say that most of us have become quite complacent about our ‘disposable society’. Indeed, many of us don’t even think twice anymore about throwing away items that are in perfectly good working order after they have been replaced with a more up-to-date model.
It is human nature to keep hold of items we get attached to rather than do away with them. This is commonly known as ‘hoarding’. Although some people are more prone to this than others (mothers and grandmothers!), most people are guilty of it to some degree or another.
The standard thing to do with your electrical devices when they finally give up the ghost is to throw them away. For example, if your ten-year old television simply ceases to operate, chances are you will take it to the tip and then go to Dixon’s and replace it with a new, improved model. You do this because you assume (rightly) that no-one will want to buy an electrical device that doesn’t work. However, although this assumption is true in most cases, there is one electronic device that doesn’t abide by such assumptions – the humble mobile phone.
Environmental awareness is a major concern for individuals, societies and governments all across the world. Indeed, recycling is a very hot topic and people everywhere are trying harder than ever to ensure they limit the effects that their actions may have on the environment.
With A-level results looking good for the 29th year in a row, we reckon there’s no time like the present to recycle phones with Mazuma and get your teenage room in step with the rest of the house! (Your parents will thank us!) in the form of a pre-uni clear-out blitz!
Of course we’re after your old mobile phones, but did you know we also want your tablets?
Like old picnic chairs and out of style drapes, some folks send their poor mobiles to the dump instead of to the phone bank or letting Mazuma Mobile offer cash for phones (silly people!) Whilst it may not play on your mind that you dumped that ancient Nokia in the bin in 1999, let’s see how you feel after learning a few unsettling facts about how well that old Nokia is doing right now!
Fundraising and recycling go hand in hand, and we’re happy to add the Mazuma Mobile name into the mix! If you’re a charity or organisation looking to make a bit of extra cash, why not plan a mobile phone recycling campaign with Mazuma?
