CTIA’s Green Working Group Encourages You To Go Wireless

Comments Off on CTIA’s Green Working Group Encourages You To Go Wireless
“Go wireless, go green” is the slogan for CTIA’s Green Working Group. The GWG is just another part of the wireless industry’s continued commitment to being green. The CTIA GWG explains on their website that there are three components to encourage more recycling of “old” devices and accessories:

  •  Develop a take-back program for devices and accessories and to educate consumers about these programs.
  • Use third party recyclers that comply with applicable federal and state electronic recycling laws.
  • Develop a common approach for measuring handset collection rates with a goal of increasing the collection of devices and electronic accessories either directly or indirectly by 20 percent by 2015.

CTIA-The Wireless Association® and the wireless industry’s sustainability efforts include developing eco-friendly products and services, implementing energy-efficient measures in network operations and business practices and educating consumers about recycling their wireless devices (e.g. cellphones and smartphones) and accessories.
