I have 3 cell phones at home...

...and my family has a lot more at our house in Cali.

If you are like us and have a bunch of used cell phones that you don't know what to do with you may find
this article interesting. It is about the mining of Coltan, a mineral used in cell phones. Eighty percent of our Coltan supply comes from DR Congo, in an area where endangered gorilla's live. The article focuses on a company that has joined forces with US zoos to increase the recycling of cell phones- a process both helps the environment by keeping toxins out of the Earth and could potentially have positive affects on the gorilla population.
