Nine­tol­ogy Fights to Save Na­ture

Part­ners with Malaysian Na­ture so­ci­ety in phone re­cy­cling pro­gram

HWM (Malaysia) - - TELEPORT -

Near­ing the end of last year, Nine­tol­ogy ASEAN and the Malaysian Na­ture So­ci­ety (MNS) formed an ex­clu­sive re­cy­cling pro­gram in or­der to com­bat the high num­ber of wastage and pol­lu­tion, due to the high num­ber of dis­pos­able mo­bile phones in the coun­try. Dubbed Smart Ecol­ogy 2, the goal of the re­cy­cling pro­gram is to re­duce the dam­ag­ing ef­fects on the en­vi­ron­ment.

“It is never smart to have ac­cu­mu­lat­ing un­used de­vices in al­most ev­ery cor­ner of our very own homes as it gives more harm than any good in the long run, es­pe­cially when new smart­phones are launched ev­ery other day. Hence, our ini­tia­tive of Smart Ecol­ogy 2 with MNS to pro­vide a plat­form for peo­ple who are look­ing to up­grade their phones,” com­mented Sean Ng, CEO of Nine­tol­ogy ASEAN com­mented.

This ini­tia­tive helps users who are look­ing to up­grade their cur­rent mo­bile phones by trad­ing in their old phones. The old phones will then be gath­ered by MNS and its Re­cy­cle for Na­ture team, which they will then dis­pose of or re­cy­cle via the Green Re­cy­cling method. Each part of the de­vices will be seg­re­gated, re­paired and then reused for fu­ture de­vices.

There are a to­tal of seven Nine­tol­ogy mod­els that are se­lected to be part of this ini­tia­tive, with three mod­els in­cluded in the pro­gram: the U9R1, Stealth II, and Insight.

As en­cour­age­ment, the Smart Ecol­ogy 2 pro­gram of­fers re­bates of up to RM200 to users who trade-in their used mo­bile phones.
