If you had the privilege of growing up in the days of Saved by the Bell and other memorable TV shows of the 1990′s then you know exactly what I mean by a “Zack Morris Phone”.
And whether you can believe it or not, some people still have these phones tucked away in their closets, shoe boxes, garages, you name it…we know they are out there. Although we understand that you like hanging onto your Zack Morris phones and other old, discarded cell phones, we think that you may just love gorillas and chimpanzees more. For that reason, you should bring your old phone to the Zoo this Saturday, May 18th and recycle it at the main entrance to receive a discounted admission ticket to enter the Zoo that day!
I never thought I would be writing a blog about the conservation of gorillas and chimpanzees and be able to mention Zack Morris, but somehow I did it…and it kind of makes sense.
Old Zack Morris Phone + Recycling at the Zoo this Saturday, May 18th (9am-3pm)= Discounted Zoo admission AND helping to save animals in Central and West Africa like chimps and gorillas who suffer from the mining of materials which are in our cell phones.
By recycling your cell phone this Saturday, May 18th at the Zoo you not only spare a few dollars on your admission into the Zoo to celebrate Endangered Species Day (hey-you could use those extra few bucks to buy yourself a few seasons of Saved by the Bell on DVD…I checked…Amazon has them for $2.03), you also help animals like gorillas and chimps who live in areas of Africa where materials for your cell phone are mined.
By recycling cell phones we lower the number of materials that are taken from gorilla and chimpanzee habitat, which directly helps protect endangered species!
Event in a nutshell:
What: Endangered Species Day-bring your old cell phone to be recycled and receive a discounted admission ticket to the Zoo. One discounted ticket per every phone recycled.
Where: Houston Zoo-Cell phone recycling table in front of main entrance.
When: Saturday, May 18th from 9am-3pm
Why: To save endangered species like gorillas and chimpanzees by recycling cell phones!
