Did you know that obsolete and discarded electronic and electrical devices often end up in landfills and incinerators? This can be very dangerous as toxic metals could seep into the ground, or our waterways; or even released into the air.
To prevent environmental disasters and reduce greenhouse gas emissions, everyone needs to know how to dispose of mobile phones, tablets, chargers, and batteries properly.
Project 1 Phone, our newest endeavor, aims to create awareness for proper electronic waste (e-waste) disposal and help counter harmful effects on health and the environment. How do we do this, you ask? Through responsible recycling, of course!
It’s the most effective solution to the growing e-waste problem. Most electronic devices such as old phones yield precious metals like gold, silver, copper, and palladium. They also contain plastics which can be recovered and re-manufactured. Recycling even uses less energy than mining for virgin metals and manufacturing plastics.
You can help the environment in so many ways just by dropping off old phones, chargers, tablets, and batteries in one of our designated recycling bins. Right now, there are recycling bins in 21 Globe Stores around the country. You can check the complete list at globe.com.ph/globebridgecom.
