Dear Fellow Environmentalists,
As members of the E-Club (short for Environment Club), we would like to first introduce ourselves. We are a group of 4th and 5th grade students that want to make a positive impact on the world’s environmental health. To do so, we will be sharing information about positive steps we can take to help our environment and organizing projects to support our efforts.
Our first project of the year is to encourage the reuse of cell phones that are still in working condition but no longer being used. Therefore, we are accepting donations of any cell phones that are still in working order. The cables and packaging are not necessary.
We will be collecting donated cell phones from February 3rd to February 7th. For elementary families, there will be collection boxes in each elementary classroom. For middle and high school families, there will be a collection box at reception with Ms. Correa.
Once we have finished collecting the cell phones, we will be donating them to a research group from the University of Barcelona. They are collecting phones from across the city that will be sold for reuse and the proceeds will go toward medical research. For more information about this project, please visit the following website.
