Earlier this week, FBR was profiled in a blog post by ExchangeMyPhone. Â Thanks for the shout-out! Â Turns out… ExchangeMyPhoneÂ is another Brooklyn start-up (right up the street in Carroll Gardens, what’re the odds?!) that focuses on the reuse and responsible recycling of electronics - specifically cell phones.
ExchangeMyPhone makes it quick and easy to sell or recycle your used and broken cell phones while doing something good for the environment. Â On their website you can get an instant quote of how much your used phone is worth. Â Some broken or older phones may no longer have monetary value but can still be sent to ExchangeMyPhone - for free! - to be responsibly recycled. Â If your phone is worth a few bones, you can mail it to their Brooklyn location from anywhere in the U.S. - again, free of charge - and ExchangeMyPhone will write you a check for the value amount. Â What’s super cool about their program is that you can start a phone drive - where lots of people send in their phones - and fundraise with e-waste. Â Awesome.
There is so much environmental creativity happening in the Gowanus area, we couldn’t be more proud to call this place home. Â At FBR we love to support our community and think that what ExchangeMyPhone is doing is super great. Â Way to go, guys… keep up the good work!
