Eleven Million Phones this Christmas

Tesco Mobile, the mobile phone service of the giant supermarket chain has carried out some research and found that around 11 million people are expecting to have a new phone in the run up to Christmas this year. Great for mobile phone companies but the worrying side effect is that 20% of people are expected to simply throw their old phone away!!

Why? Well, it seems we don’t really know how to recycle them so throwing them away is an easy alternative! To try and help a little Tesco have a mobile recycling service where you can earn cash, vouchers, green club points or donate money to charity. Even if your phone won’t switch on they will still give money to charity.
