Phones for ducks

Date: 13-Dec-10

Right now there’s an even greater incentive to rummage through your cupboards to unearth your old mobile phones! Over the next two months, for every two mobile phone handsets received through their recycling program, MobileMuster will give a duck to a family fighting poverty in Mozambique through the Oxfam Unwrapped program. Mobiles received between the 1 November 2010 and 31 January 2011 will be counted. Up to 1,000 ducks will be donated.

This is a timely opportunity to let your family and friends know about MobileMuster’s ‘duck initiative’, especially over the Christmas period when new mobile phones are often given as presents. Remember, it’s not just the handsets that can be recycled – you can also drop off your old mobile phones batteries, chargers and accessories!
