What do you generally do with your old mobile phones?
It seems that people now change their mobile phones every 18 months in the US. And, as far as I can observed, we do the same thing here in Mauritius. This implies that most of us must have 1-2 old mobile phones in a cupboard somewhere. In many countries, there are myriads of organisations which collect old mobile phones to give them to poor people. Does anyone know if there are similar organisations in Mauritius?
As for the mobile phones which are broken (or really outdated), the solution in recycling. But, once more, living in Mauritius provides no joy: I’ve just noticed that we do not have any Nokia Care points in our island (unlike Algeria, Egypt, Ghana, Kenya, Libya, Morocco, Nigeria, Senegal, South Africa, Tanzania and Tunisia.) Hey, BAI people, instead of wasting time and money on buying cars that cannot be used on our roads, build a Nokia Care point. It’s better for the environment.
