It's not as silly as it sounds, it's all part of a recycling effortand sportsmanship - and by now, a long standing tradition.
In their own words:
Mobile Phone Throwing is light and modern Finnish sport that suits for people of all ages. It combines recycling philosophy and fun spirit in active sport. A part of the philosophy is also a spiritual freedom from being available all the time.
