What is your wish for this project?
The families of the children attending the Kids Express After School Roots and Shoots Club heard Jane's request to recycle cell phones and tablets. We hope to collect around 30 devices to recycle.
How did it go?
The electronic recycle baskets were on display for 3-4 weeks. The school collected 26 cell phones and tablets. This was very close to our goal of 30 devices. We packaged them up and sent them off to the recycling company on June 9th. The kids were excited to see so many different phones to recycle. They were happy to know they helped save some unnecessary mining in Africa and were able to help the chimpanzees and their homes.
