Recycling can be good for the planet

Recycling mobile phones could be an even more attractive option for consumers who take on board the words of one young expert.

Matt Danstrom, who is just eight years old, told the Peninsula Gateway this week that having seen the way in which reusable waste is unnecessarily thrown into refuse trucks - he is keen to take action.

With a little help from his school, the little eco warrior has undertaken an email campaign designed to encourage people in his local community to embrace recycling in a bid to help save the planet.

In the messages - which also contain links to YouTube footage of the ten million square miles of rubbish that currently sits in the Pacific Ocean - he tells readers why the future of the Earth is in their hands.

Mr Danstrom told the publication: "If we get them all around the world, it can be stopped. Next thing you know, the world will be clean."

His words may inspire some to consider mobile recycling, a process that can prevent some of the harmful plastics and chemicals that go in to modern electricals from damaging the planet.
