|The Philippine Tarsier|
Nokia Philippines, Globe Telecom, Ayala Foundation and Philippine Tarsier Foundation (PTFI) recently launched I-recover, I-Recycle program that aims to heed the call for the recycling project aimed at creating awareness on the importance of saving the environment and its endangered species. The said program aims to make people become aware of proper waste disposal and its main vision is to attract the general public, including Globe and non-Globe subscribers, as well as Nokia and non-Nokia users, to donate old mobile phones by bringing them to the cellular phone recycling bins located in Globe stores and at all Ayala Malls nationwide.
For every old mobile phone collected for recycling, Nokia will donate 100Php to the PTFI to support programs for preserving the Philippine Tarsier and its habitat. Anyone who donates a “complete” mobile phone (with battery) will also receive a Nokia eco-item and a chance to win a Nokia C6 smartphone in a raffle draw.
The program will run until August 4, 2012. Participants may visit any of Globe’s 140 stores nationwide or any of the Ayala Malls.
Hope you guys will be able to help save these cute little tarsiers and be able to dispose of your old mobile phones properly.
