CAMPAIGN FOR THE RECYCLING OF BROKEN CELL PHONES, The Jane Goodall Institute Italy

The Jane Goodall Institute, which has long been committed to building a better future for animals, people and the environment, has promoted the mobile recycling campaign worldwide to allow each of us to contribute:
to reduce the accumulation of toxic waste, due to pollution of the environment in which we live;
to reduce the demand for coltan and tantalum that can be recovered from old devices no longer used and, consequently, to avoid the destruction of forests, habitats of chimpanzees in danger of extinction;
to support, with the proceeds from recycled cell phones, the medical, food and school expenses of orphans living at “The Child’s Home of Sanganigwa” in Tanzania, an ambitious educational and global project, to ensure that Sanganigwa’s guests become prepared and autonomous individuals, active citizens and promoters of development in their territory.
The JGI Italy has started collecting mobile phones with an appeal to all of us citizens. Cell phones collected are sent to a company that recycles minerals and metals. The proceeds from the campaign help fund educational projects of the Jane Goodall Institute.

Anyone with a cell phone to discard can participate in this project of conservation of chimpanzees and their habitat by bringing it the night of the Adventure Awards Night.
