Happy Earth Week! This week is an exciting week for us at SecondWave Recycling. We’ve got our month-long Earth Day collection campaign going on at the Seattle, Portland and the Bay Area WeWork locations; in addition we are hosting a pop-up cell phone repair shop at all three Seattle WeWork locations this week, as well as hosting a Lunch & Learn with 5Gyres to educate and promote awareness about the plastic pollution in the ocean.
For this year’s Earth Day, SecondWave Recycling has partnered with WeWork, a cool co-working space where our new Seattle office is located! We will donate $1 for every phone collected during the month of April to our friends at 5Gyres, a community that fights plastic pollution in the ocean.

We came up with the idea because we realized that you want to help charity but, if you have a newer phone, you may prefer to sell your phone rather than donate. By offering a trade-in option we’re putting money in your pocket with the added bonus of helping charity.Read More »Sell Your Phone. Get Paid. Help Charity.
