Today,I came across an advertisement by Nokia to encourage and imprint environmental awareness through recycling.Nokia claim that if every 3 billion phone users recycle just one phone,we can save over 240,000 tonnes of raw materials.The results is equivalent to stopping CO2 emissions from 4 million cars.Nokia campaign is that they will assigned a tree to you if you are the first 1000 to recycle a phone using the Nokia Kiosk.Is this a good idea?I trully think that Nokia is an environmental conscious company and I hope more companies will follow. Will you support recycling

That's really a good move. Nowadays, due to the ever increasing global warming concerns and side effects, preserving the environment is the utmost important matters. By cultivating the awareness among the people, less rubbish is produced and more trees could be saved. I will give full support to any recycling program. I am green environmentalist, and always keep waste paper, aluminium can, glass/plastic bottles for recycling purpose.

Thanks, and happy mylotting to you too! Actually, it's really good for these giant cell phone company to start collecting old cell phone for recycling. But however, does this apply to worldwide or just certain region. Because I didn't see any news in South East Asia regarding the recycling program. I do have some very old Nokia phones, and if this program is available, then I will just submit to them, instead of throwing it.

I think they have initiated a good track bu running on it so many others can also contribute to reduce the pollution and help containing global warming. A smart start. I think other companies producing various products should also initiate some measures to contain the global warning.

Hi sweethomecatring, Not left out too is Sony's "Green Partner Program". These are two of my customers where we sell them our manufacturing products. Great supporter of recycling :)

Yes, I wholeheartedly support recycling. I have two waste bins - one for recycling and the other for ordinary household waste. I don't use plastic bags for my shopping, instead I use a bag made from recycling material. If I upgrade my mobile phone, then I will give the other away on a recycling site.

Hi Alexandria, Good to hear you're a supporter :) Back home we do separate waste like plastic,paper and put them in different bags for recycle. Seem like majority of the citizen here do not practice this.There are slowly learning to do recycle as supermarket are promoting shopper to reuse their shopping bags or biodegradeable bags.There are more organization collecting waste to recycle and for charity thus promoting awareness among citizen here.Now Nokia has come up with an indegenious way of promoting recycling.Thumbs up for Nokia . :)
