YOUR OLD CELL CAN HELP HAITI
Bins located around Arena Grand Lobby
Bring your old cell phones – working or not – with you to Congress. This year we are partnering with GetGreenToGetGreen.com, an organization that recycles cell phones. Get Green To Get Green is committed to keep our planet green by reusing or recycling unused cell phones. The proceeds generated from this partnership will be donated to the Haiti relief efforts through CRS. More than 130 million cell phones are thrown away every year. Don’t throw away electronics that should be recycled. Do your part to recycle your old cell phone – and help Haiti in the process.
