In partnership with LiveNation, Rock the Earth is calling on all DelFest attendees to gather up their old, unwanted mobile phones and bring them to the Rock the Earth booth at DelFest for proper recycling. Each person recycling a phone will receive 20% Off a future LiveNation Store purchase, AND each phone is worth one entry into the on-site sweepstakes drawing for cool prizes like CDs and DVDs, Rock the Earth T-shirts, Digital Downloads, DelFest commemorative posters, plus MANY MORE GREAT PRIZES!
The more phones you bring to DelFest for recycling, the less toxic chemicals end up in landfills and the bigger your positive impact on the environment, while also increasing your chances of winning one of these fantastic prizes!
DID YOU KNOW?
Cell phones contain toxic substances such as lead, mercury, arsenic, cadmium and nickel, which enter the ecosystem when they are thrown out and disposed via landfill.
There are over one billion out of use cell phones in the US alone. That’s more than 3 for every person in the US! Less than 10% of cell phones are ever recycled and most enter landfills or incinerators, among other environmentally unsound destinations.
PLEASE HELP US RAISE PUBLIC AWARENESS ABOUT THE NEGATIVE CONSEQUENCES OF NOT RECYCLING MOBILE PHONES
All phones are purged of information, with working phones re-distributed via non-profits, domestic violence shelters, and other positive community-based support groups. outdated phones have all the toxic chemicals and heavy metals removed for re-use and all other components disposed of properly.
If you are not attending DelFest but want to recycle your cell phone properly while also receiving the terrific LiveNation Store discount, you can recycle you phone (with free shipping) via the following avenue: http://www.rtephonedrive.com
