    Do you guys do other things? I know some older (maybe newer monitors) have lead and such that probably shouldn't be normally disposed of.

    true about .org, but I think it's cool what they're doing.

    It is cool, however the trust factor to the .com is not too high (at least for me). I actually see a billion and one hidden agendas (or maybe I am just paranoid)

    Better yet, give it to your local battered womens shelter. They reactivate them and give them to battered women who can use them in emergencies and the husbands won't know. I didn't see what this guy is planning on doing with them, but it's probably to salvage the precious metals like they do with used computers and monitors.

    I was just about to post this. Even inactive cellular phones can be used to call 911. there are a number of programs which redistribute cellphones to people in need for this purpose.

    Cellphones and the environment? what about 'digital cameras and the environment' or 'watches and the environment'.

    blah blah.

    Alltel usually gives you a small credit for you old phone. They also then donate them to the local battered woman's shelter. Deactived cell phones still work, you just need a credit card or you can call 911 as mentioned above.

    Your website just silly to me considering most providers will recycle your phone for you. I second that .org would look better than .com, I get the feeling that you have another plan. Spamming forums also doesn't help your image.
