As a father with a child suffering with Childhood Diabetes, I know first hand the difficult challenges that families face in fighting a deadly and life-changing disease, while also trying to maintain a normal and healthy family life.

Wireless mobile buyback and recycling company e-Cycle LLC is launching an “e-Cycle for Juvenile Diabetes” campaign and will donate $1 to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) for every mobile phone sold or recycled from Nov. 14 through the 23.
e-Cycle CEO,Chris Irion, said the goal of the promotion is to help raise awareness and support for two causes that are close to his heart—America Recycles Day (Nov. 15) and American Diabetes Month (November). Irion said that he hopes the campaign will encourage organizations to recycle their used mobile devices responsibly in November and also help support a critical research fund dedicated to finding a cure for the debilitating disease.
“As a father with a child suffering with Childhood Diabetes, I know first hand the difficult challenges that families face in fighting a deadly and life-changing disease, while also trying to maintain a normal and healthy family life,” Irion said. “e-Cycle was founded on three principals: a love of technology, environmental protection, and charitable giving. Our ‘e-Cycle for Juvenile Diabetes’ promotion touches all three of our passions and I hope businesses will join us in our cause.”
How the “e-Cycle for Juvenile Diabetes” promotion works:
1. Businesses and organizations collect their used mobile devices and mail them to e-Cycle using the company’s pre-paid FedEx shipping labels. Go to http://www.e-Cycle.com and click on the “Contact Us” link in the upper right-hand section of the homepage, fill out the form and request a label in the “Questions or Comments” field.
2. e-Cycle will purchase any devices that are reusable and still have market value and recycle all other phones and accessories at no-charge. Companies can elect to have the check written back to them or as a charitable contribution directly to the JDRF. All sensitive data is completely removed from the devices.
3. e-Cycle will donate $1 for every mobile phone that the company receives from Nov. 14 through 23, 2011.
4. All mobile devices and accessories that cannot be reused are shredded on site and sent to an EPA-registered metals refinery where the precious materials are reclaimed for reuse in the production of new products.
