    A recent survey conducted by Nokia found that only 3% of people recycle their mobile phones despite the fact that old devices are often just lying around at home.

    This is a sad statistic I hope everyone out there does try and do the smart thing with your phones.
    Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.

    As we noted in the article, another 41% give away or sell their old phones ... "re-use" is just as good for the environment as recycling, I think.

    I absolutely agree. I usually sell my phones and someone who did not or could not buy it new, now has a chance to get it. It makes that person happy and does not negatively impact the environment. It also frees up funds for my new toy. A win-win situation if I ever saw one.
