Students and Faculty - Did you ask Santa for a new cell phone for Christmas?
More than 125 MILLION cell phones are thrown away every year, creating nearly 20,000 tons of hazardous landfill waste annually.
Do you want to get rid of your old one guilt-free, help the planet AND help Benet?
If you have any old cell phones laying around your house, it doesn't matter how old, ugly or broken they are, bring them to either Mr. Brooks' or Mrs. Arthurs' classrooms and Benet will get anywhere from $1 - $10 to recycle it, depending on the kind of phone.
You can do this at any time for the rest of the year. Go Benet and make every day Earth Day!
P.S. Don't just round up phones at your house without asking your parents for permission. Santa knows if you're being naughty...
There will be a Logos 3rd Day gathering, Thursday, December 15th in the chapel after school. All former participants are encouraged to attend. Remember, to live Logos.
Remember to record your service hours in the binder in the SAC by the end of first semester.
