Did you know that only 2.3% of Americans recycle their cell phones but that 90% of Americans reported they would recycle their cell phones if there was an easy way to do it?
Go Green for Schools is a new and innovative cell phone recycling initiative brought to you by Qwest. By recycling your cell phone, you keep unused cell phones out of landfills and reduce green house gas emissions. This recycling program also helps raise money for public school districts and preK-12 educational initiatives.

They also have a pretty cool program to encourage their customers to pay their bills Paperlessly. They print more than 100 million invoices per year and receive 90 million paper check payments. If 20% of their customers go paperless, they can avoid creating 19,705,448 pounds of greenhouse gasses, the equivalent of 2,715,702 square feet of forest preserved from deforestation.
Plus, if you sign-up for their Paperless Billing and Autopay Electronic Funds Transfer, Qwest will donate the equivalent of one percent of your monthly Residential bill to the eligible school district of your choice -- at no extra cost to you.
