Greener Pastures for Your Old Techno Gadgets

Posted Dec 29 2008 6:37am
With all the cool high tech gadgets on the market these days like the iPod Touch and the Blackberry, there is a high likelihood that some techno gift giving will be taking place this holiday season.

If you are the lucky recipient of a new gadget like a laptop or camera, don’t just throw your old one in the trash. Take some time to earn some extra cash and/or help the environment. Here’s how:

* Sell it! If your gadget is still in good condition, sell it on eBay. It’s a great way to earn some extra cash!

* Donate it! There are dozens of charities that except old cell phones, iPods, cameras. Take a few minutes to find a local charity near you that needs old electronics. Here are a few options: Cell Phones for Soldiers, Computers with Causes, Recycling for Charity, and The National Coalition for Domestic Violence. All of these charities help worthy causes!

* Recycle it! If your old tech toy is broken and you can’t donate it, take the time to properly recycle. ECycling is a great resource that can connect you with a regional location that will recycle your gadget.

Either way, you are making a conscious effort to be least wasteful and help preserve our environment! Well done.
