If you’re like most people, you’ve owned more than a few cell phones in your lifetime. When you’ve finished with them, you probably know it’s best to recycle them, and here’s a great way to do it — Cell Phones for Soldiers.

What a great gift for military men and women so far away from their families!Have an old cell phone or tablet? Donate it to Cell Phones for Soldiers.

According to their website, “Cell Phones for Soldiers was founded by teenagers Robbie and Brittany Bergquist from Norwell, Mass., with $21 of their own money. Since then, the registered 501c3 non-profit organization has raised over $7 million dollars, provided over 114 million minutes of free talk time to soldiers, and recycled over 8.3 million cellphones.”
It couldn’t be any easier to recycle your phone with this program. Click where it says “SHIP PHONES DIRECTLY TO CPFS.” You’ll be able to print a postage-paid label to mail in your old phone or find a drop off location near you. Cell phones for Soldiers will handle the rest.
