When you recycle your mobile. It goes through checks and stages. It can either be refurbished and then resold on again to other people. Maybe those in poorer countries where they can not afford new mobiles but need to stay in touch with family and friends etc. Or it can have its working parts taken out and used as replacement parts in other mobiles that are sold on again this way. Or wisely, it is recycled completely to make new products which can in turn, help people out in other ways there too.
As you may know, the recycling of mobile phones (and similar electrical gadgets) helps the Environment in a number of ways. It reduces landfill for starters. Where mobiles, and their batteries, can contaminate the earth and grounds natural food and water supply which can cost millions more to treat safely. It also reduces mining in places where there are delicate ecological systems or endangered species of wildlife. All the metals, plastics, glass and materials from the phone can be extracted and used again in new products. So by recycling your mobile you are essentially offsetting its carbon footprint which means less damage to the Environment.
These reasons to recycle your old mobile for cash will give you more of an insight into why people do. At the end of the day, there is only so much you can say on the matter. But there is still a way to go when it comes to mobile phone recycling so that it truly can have a helping effect on our Environment.
Despite the research statistics in reason 1. Many more people are now recycling their old mobiles and gadgets. I believe because of a mixture of things. (a) The awareness raised around mobile phone recycling. (b) The economy and peoples financial situations and (c). A genuine care for the Environment and a will to want to recycle. By doing so and getting cash for your mobile, you will be encouraging other people to do the same. In turn this will create a viral effect (As it has). And mean more people recycling, more carbon offsetting and less damage to the Environment.
Many people up and down the country. The old and young alike, are digging out and dusting off their old mobile phones and electronic devices and recycling them for cash to a certain mobile recycling site. It is a pleasure to get some cash back for the old mobiles and gadgets you do not use anymore. And you can even get cash for broken phones so it is rewarding when you get a price for your mobile and are surprised by how much you can actually get.
Mobile advertising company ironSource is announcing its second acquisition of the year — Luna Labs, a startup that that’s built a platform allowing app developers to create and manage video and playable ads.
When I first wrote about the startup in 2019, its main selling point was the ability to create those ads directly from from the Unity game engine used by many developers. Since then, it has expanded its platform to support the creation of both playable and video ads (including unlimited variations of a gameplay video), manage their entire ad library, analyze their performance and even automatically optimize them based on install data. Its customers include Crazy Labs, Supersonic Studios, Lion Studios, Kwalee and Voodoo.
IronSource, meanwhile, has built a platform for mobile user growth and monetization. It was valued at more than $1 billion in its most recent funding round of more than $400 million, and in January it announced the acquisition of ad measurement company Soomla.
In a statement, ironSource’s co-founder and chief revenue officer Omer Kaplan said:
Our vision at ironSource is to build the most comprehensive growth platform for app developers, allowing them to focus on content creation and on building a great user experience, while we provide the infrastructure for their business expansion. Creatives are a key part of that and have only become more important as competition for user attention grows. But ad creative development and testing at scale is incredibly difficult and costly. Luna Labs solves that by bringing high quality end-to-end ad creation management to app developers, and we’re excited to be able to add that capability into the ironSource platform.
The financial terms of the acquisition were not disclosed. IronSource says that the Luna Labs team (currently based in the United Kingdom) will remain in its current offices, where it will continue developing its technology “under the ironSource umbrella.”
