Recycled Virgins

Don’t get excited, fanboy. We’re just telling you about a new initiative from Virgin Mobile, a fairly popular MVNO amongst you youth types. It has started packaging envelopes with their new handsets with the intention of its customers using it to recycle their old handset. It’s kind of a cool idea, if people actually use it.

Far from going to the dump, the phones will be repurposed and sold in developing countries to people far less fortunate than you. So now you can buy the latest not-a-RAZR and have the satisfaction of doing something for humanity. Good for you, duder. Good for you.
