Recycling your cell phone will buy a duck for a family in need
MobileMuster, Australia's official recycling program for the cell phone industry, has launched a campaign to help families living in poverty. "Recycle your old phone and we will give ducks to the Ofcam Unwrapped program" says their website.
According to the Sydney Morning Herald, "for every two old mobile phones donated for recycling to MobileMuster by the end of January, the not-for-profit organisation will buy one duck for a family in Mozambique".
"One duck can mean the difference between nutritional health and financial security for a family in Mozambique," Oxfam spokesman Leigh Stewart said in a statement on Wednesday.
