The #CycleMyCell 2019 Student Challenge is a friendly mobile phone recycling competition between Winnipeg Area High Schools. The goal? Learn about sustainable consumer choices, reduce the amount of e-waste in our landfills, recycle the precious minerals inside old phones, lower carbon emissions AND protect the Congo basin where those minerals are being mined and where Great Apes live.
JGI provides campaign resources and support to a champion educator who delivers the content to students in the form of videos, activities, guided curriculum and discussions. Students are then encouraged to organize cell phone collection in their communities. Schools can win prize money for their participation!
