According to Sienna Miller (via Global Cool), it takes only a minute to save the planet – and you don’t have to wear a cape and tights. All you have to do is turn down your thermostat one degree and recycle your cell phone.
The actress, who shot to fame as Jude Law’s betrothed during his sleeping-with-the-nanny scandal and then caused a did-she-or-didn’t-she? scandal of her own on the set of Factory Girl, has put all of her various public embarrassments behind her and teamed up with Global Cool and Vodafone UK to encourage people to help combat climate change.
The beautiful blond has appeared in a new ad in which she claims to be saving the world, and is also the Vodafone recycling spokeswoman on the net. According to the site: “Up to 80% of the material content of a mobile phone can be recycled and reused – saving the planet’s precious resources. This year we’re going to recycle 500,000 phones, which is a lot, but with your help we’ll do it.”
Money raised from recycled phones will go to The Million Superheroes Campaign and Solar Aid.
Not sure if Sienna will somehow be able to spin this into a scandal or if she’s truly turned altruistic. In the meantime, if you want to recycle your old cell phone in the UK, visit your local Vodafone store or click here for info on recycling in the U.S.
