#CycleMyCell

The #CycleMyCell Student Challenge is a friendly mobile phone recycling competition between 10 GTA high schools. The goal?

Why Recycle Your Mobile Phone?

Recycling
Great Apes
People
Forests
Recycling mobile phones prevents toxic materials from polluting the soil and ensures metals, plastic and glass are reused.
Many of the rare earth metals used to make cell phones are extracted from the forests in the Democratic Republic of Congo, home to Great Apes and other endangered species.
High demand for the minerals contained in cell phones perpetuates dangerous mining operations which fund the conflict in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
Protecting the forests in the Democratic Republic of Congo is not just essential to people and animals, but is critical to curbing climate change.
