Website Hope Phones Sends Old Cell Phones to Medical Clinics in Developing Countries

Website of the Day: Hope Phones

Recycling your cell phone is definitely great, but it can be a little anticlimactic. Send the old phone off to the recycling center, feel good about self and earth, but then it's over. No tangible karmic payoff.

Hope Phones, however, lets you recycle that old phone and put it to good use (upcycling, you could call it). When you donate a cell phone to Hope Phones, the phone goes to a medical clinic in a developing country for their use. And they couldn't make it any easier; just click the red "donate" button and slip the phone into an envelope (they pay for the shipping).

Instant cell phone karma.
