Mobile Phone Recycling

As part of Enviro Week, Salesian College launched a mobile phone recycling campaign in conjunction with Zoos Victoria.

Did you know that mobile phones contain coltan, a mineral commonly mined in Africa. Illegal coltan mining has contributed to the loss of 50% of Eastern Lowland Gorillas in just 20 years. You can help reduce the need for coltan and help raise funds to support gorillas in the wild.

You are encouraged to support this campaign by locating any old or broken mobile phones you may have at home and sending them to school with your son so that together we can help save the gorillas of Africa.
