This originated with me sending regular emails to my close friends and family on environmental issues and changes which could ‘green’ their lifestyle. The group has unintentionally grown quickly as friends of friends ask to join. The EcoEmails don’t always give people an easy solution to a problem but try to make them aware that every decision they make has environmental and sustainability consequences. If you would like to join pls email me at

The Energy Saving Trust calculates plugged-in mobile phone chargers waste over £60 million across the UK.

So best to Unplug your mobile charger or switch it off at the wall while it’s not in use….
Recycle your old mobile phone for cash (or vouchers)!

If you recycle your phone through Envirofone, you maybe eligible for a cash or Argos voucher reward!

Phones are either sent for re-use to countries where there is poor land-line service or they are recycled.

Envirofone award you enviropoints depending on the make and model of your phone. Enviropoints have an equivalent value in cash or Argos Vouchers and Envirofone will also donate £1 to Banardos charity for each phone recycled.

Register on-line (your details and the phone details) and Envirofone will send you a freepost envelope to send them the phone. Once they receive the phone and carry out a number of checks, they will send you a cheque or the vouchers.

Or give me your address and I will send you an stamped addressed envelope which all you have to do is put your phone in… to send it to Rainforest concern… and that will help them raise money to save rainforests in South America.

    So many people never recycle their old mobile phones so the scope for recycling is potentially huge and could have incredible environmental benefits around the world including lessening the resources used and the production of new mobile phones itself.
