We just found out on the Sietch that now you can get rid of that old cell phone and make some money for a good cause at the same time.
ECO-CELL is a cell phone recycling program for environmentally minded fundraisers. They partner with environmental organizations to create profitable, easy to use and environmentally sound cell phone recycling fundraiser programs.
