Over the last 30 years that Slovenia has had mobile phones, many older models are just gathering dust in drawers. You probably have one or two that have met the same fate.
As we strive to act more responsibly and look to ensure that our environment has a brighter future, it makes sense to recycle the metal used in old mobile phones to make new ones.
With this in mind: how do you make the public aware that their old phones are worth recycling?
Telekom, the Slovenian mobile provider, will plant a bee-friendly tree for every five used phones collected. This provides a home for bees and other pollinators. For each phone you bring in, Telekom will reward you with a handmade bracelet.
