Recycling is 'good for the soul'

4 February 2009 — 3:01 PM

Recycling and green living is something which can be good for the spirit as well as the planet, it has been advised.

The spokeswoman and founder of Kathie's Finds, a small US retail store that focuses on sustainability, said this week that she has enriched her own life by adopting a more environmentally-friendly attitude.

Kathie Armstrong added she was brought up in a home where waste was considered a bad thing, which taught her well for her business endeavours.

"It's a lovely thing to be able to make a difference in the world and in my own community," she said.

Ms Armstrong's comments could inspire those weighing up the benefits of recycling mobile phones ahead of shopping for the latest contracts or pay-as-you-go packages.

Orange is one company which has recently refreshed it's prepay line-up, by offering the first ever BlackBerry with full data facilities for £5 per month.
