Nobody hates the environment. It's just that some of us have a hard enough time worrying about ourselves and our families to think about caring for Mother Nature 24 hours a day. But that's where Unplggd comes in, bringing you this list to make recycling gadgets so easy to do...

I just bought my fourth cell phone ever. That means two things: I'm not upgrade crazy, and I have three old cell phones lying in my kitchen drawer "just in case."

It's time I recycled those old working phones, but when it comes to figuring out exactly where to do it, I'm lost.

I'm glad that I stumbled upon Engadget's "How-to: recycle your old gadgets." It's a list of links and details about major electronics recycling programs from individual companies, wireless carriers and retail stores. You'll be able to see exactly what they accept and even get a tip if you get any kind of goodies for participating (Some retailers offer gift cards for going green!).

Plus, there's info about feel-good causes like Cell Phones for Soldiers.
