experience - Winner plus 12 friends wins use of the Gibson Tour Bus for a
one night concert excursion.
Allman Brothers Band guitarist Derek Trucks commented "We're very happy to align with Rock the Earth in this effort to keep mobile phones out of landfill, and just like everyone else, we too have been looking for the right place to recycle our old phones. In fact, I plan on bringing my five old phones to the Rock the Earth booth and I encourage everyone else to do the same".
Did you know that one (1) mobile phone has enough
super toxic heavy metals to contaminate 40,000 gallons of drinking water?
Or, that one (1) billion new mobile phones were issued last year in the US
alone, yet less than 1% ever get recycled?
For those people looking to recycle an old phone
but who are unable to attend any of these shows, they can still do so by simply
going to: Rock
the Earth Phone Recycling Center to utilize the online entry form
and free shipping. All participants will receive the 20% off Musictoday discount
and gain entry into the Grand Prize sweepstakes drawing, So, what are you
waiting for? The more phones recycled - the less toxic chemicals
threatening America's most precious natural resource - our drinking water
supply!! And, the greater your chances of winning!
