Wearin’ o’ the Green

A tip of the hat to The Louisville Zoo, which has the Number 1 phone recycling program in the nation according to the green group, ECO-CELL.

More than 100 zoos in North America participate in the group’s recycling program and in 2008, ECO-CELL claims these efforts have diverted 4,000 pounds of toxic cell phone batteries, 35,000 cell phones and 6,000 pounds of cell phone accessories from landfills. The Louisville Zoo collected more than 4,400 old cell phones.
