I recently partnered with ecoATM to share important tips about saving our environment. Today is Earth Day! To people who care about the environment, today marks the day to celebrate the earth and make a commitment to make lifetime changes to change our environmental impact. Every year our family takes a look around our home and tries to find new ways to make the Earth a better place to live for our children. On Earth Day I would also like to encourage you to take the initiative to save our environment by recycling your unused electronics with ecoATM.
I recently checked out a local ecoATM and got instant cash for recycling my families unused electronics. The kiosk was easy to use and provided many options for recycling phones, tables and mp3 players from various vendors. It inspired me to take an inventory of all the electronics and accessories that are hidden in drawers and boxes around my home and recycle them.
