Saving Gorillas Is The Coolest!!

Cincinnati Zoo.  The program donates any working phones to various organizations and properly recycles the others.  How does this save gorillas you might ask?  Well there is an ore called coltan that is mined in natural gorilla habitats in Africa that is used in most cell phones.  By recycling the material there is less need for additional mining, and therefore less destruction of the gorilla’s habitat.  We are all trying to chip in here, but we would be happy to see that any donations anyone might wish to offer would be contributed to this valuable program.  The Zoo runs this program throughout the year, but this particular collection runs through the end of November.  Thank you for any help you can offer and for supporting a great cause.
