Don't throw away your phone November 18, 2007 6:12 PM

I want to mention that donating phones to battered women's shelters is a good way to reuse them. Most old phones can still be used to call 911, even if there is no active account. Shelters give them out to their clients, who then can use them in times of emergency. Other options would be to donate the used phones to friends and family members who travel a lot or live in risky areas. Reduce, reuse, recycle, right?  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
