Watch out Apple, you’re not the only smart phone in town. Every day, it seems more and more people are switching over to the Linux-based operating system developed by Google – Android. Android, the little green robot, the operating system of choice for HTC, Sony, Dell, Intel, Motorola, Samsung, LG, T-Mobile, Sprint, Nextel, and 75% of the current smartphone market share, represents the past, present, and future of handheld mobile devices.
Every day, 1.3 million Android devices, including phones, tablets, televisions, smartbooks, and cameras, are activated. While this is a great triumph for the Apple competitor, it’s not such good news for landfills across the world. For every 1.3 million Android’s activated, several hundreds of thousands are deactivated and many of those are tossed in the trash.
Recycle Those Old Phones!
Here are some facts about cell phones you probably didn’t know:
Approximately 75% of obsolete cell phones are left to cluttered drawers or dusty basements, and according to the Environmental Protection Agency, if these phones (and their contents of precious metals/resources) were to be recycled, there would be enough extra energy to energize households around the world.
In America, over 140 million cell phones are left to landfills each year. In addition to taking up already limited space, such electronic scrap contains toxic chemicals, like cadmium and nickel, which can seep into surrounding soil.
