Congratulations, for you have just taken your first step in saving the earth. So what if you haven’t planted your ideas into action, you still do have landed here in order to know what you could do to contribute the ‘go green’ movement. Recycling has become a quintessential prospect of life for everyone these days as the alarming rate of exhausting natural resources seem to be rising even more. Metals that are generally used in the circuit boards and wires of your mobile phones have taken a long and expensive journey to reach there in the first place. These metals are excavated or rather mined out of the earth which requires a whole lot of energy in doing so. Hence, when you dispose off your mobile phones in some corner of an abandoned space in your house or simply throw it in the trash can you are actually disposing of tones of energy that was spent not to mention the fuel to supply the energy.

Mobile phones have formed a strong and prominent presence in most of our lives. Moreover, with the ever growing craze for newer technologies that changes by the hour, an average man is soon phased out on the craving for the existing mobile handset and hunts for the newer and much advanced models. While you are not to blame and it is cool to be synchronized with the latest trends, you also need to take up the role of a responsible citizen and learn more about how you could put the older mobiles to constructive use.

If you want to make a better and much advanced mobile your own and discard your worn out and old LG Optimus 2X you must act in advance in order to find the right sources where you could do a lot more than just discarding. You must act to recycle the LG Optimus 2X as recycling the phone can reduce the amount of junk in landfills. It is not unknown that when the mobile phones enter the landfills, the toxic substances from the batteries may leak into your water resources thus posing a long term hazard to your health. And since we have spoken about how much energy has been spent in mining metals used in small percentages in your phone, it is really a bad idea to leave your old LG Optimus 2X just in the trash or in the corner of your house.

Sell LG Optimus 2X to specific organizations who are involved in recycling mobile phones in your area and you can rest assured that your mobile is going to someone in need of a mobile phone in the third world nations. If that cannot be the case depending on the working condition of your mobile phone the different parts of the mobile phone can be used to manufacture a new phone all together. So when you recycle the LG Optimus 2X most of its parts could be re-used and can thus re-emerge in a new avatar incorporated in multiple new phones. The last resort after you sell LG Optimus 2X that is rather in a condition that can neither be passed on to someone or re-used, the metal parts in them could be recycled and the rest of the non-recyclable waste could be separated.
