Globe Telecom is raffling off one gadget every month as an incentive for its customers to actively support the company’s Project 1 Phone electronic waste recycling campaign.
Project 1 Phone aims to recover and recycle e-wastes specifically mobile phones and portable devices as well as their chargers and batteries to promote proper disposal and to educate the people about the benefits of recycling. Proceeds from the program will be added to the funds for 40 schools which Globe is building in Aklan to serve schoolchildren displaced by Typhoon Haiyan a year ago.
“Being a telecommunications provider, Globe would like to ensure that the company and its customers do not add to the growing worldwide problem of improper e-waste disposal which can pollute the environment and harm our health. This promo is our way of encouraging our customers to become advocates of e-waste recycling and environmental protection and also a way of thanking those who heeded the call,” said Yoly Crisanto, Senior Vice President, Globe Corporate Communications.
The raffle for one iPad Air is open to all prepaid and postpaid subscribers of Globe and TM nationwide. Interested participants may dispose any brand of their old mobile phones with battery in exchange for a raffle ticket. One old mobile phone with battery is equivalent to one unique code.
To join the promo and get the unique code, Globe and TM customers should present the old mobile phone with battery to the on-duty security guard at participating partner establishment and drop them off at the designated cell phone recycling bin. (Please check www.globe.com.ph/project1phone for the list of participating Globe stores).
Participants should register and text the unique code using the following syntax and send it to 2948: RECYCLE code/name/age/address. Ex. Recycle ABC123/Juan dela Cruz/23/14-B Real St. Makati City. For succeeding entries sending, participant can text RECYCLE and send it to 2948; Ex. RECYCLE DEF456. Registration and entry submission cost P2.50 for Globe or TM users.
The customer will receive a confirmation code, which contains the status of the registration. Only one name can be registered per SIM card.
