In my journey to find everything and everyone doing good for the environment, I find really cool things everyday. Some I bookmark and come back to later, and some I just have to share immediately. Well this is one of those stories I came across that I could not contain myself, I thought, if only people knew they could turn all of their old electronic gadgets into cash!
A company called Gazelle does just that. This company is spectacular. Not only are they green for the environment, they are green for your wallet, which is always a plus! So here is how it works.
1. You login to Gazelle's website and answer a few questions about the device then Gazelle will automatically determine how much it will pay you based on the quick questions you asked! (BTW there is never a charge, so even if you have just a piece of junk electronic device, Gazelle will recycle it for FREE!)
2. The company pays for shipping and will send customers a box for most orders.
3.One of Gazelle's 75 employees hand-inspects each device to insure the customer rating is accurate, and erases any user files -- from documents to photos to MP3s.
4. If the item is deemed to be in good enough condition to resell to secondary retailers, wholesalers or refurbishers, the owner gets a check. If not, Gazelle recycles it at no cost to the owner.
It's that simple! Gazelle takes 15+ categories: cell phones, laptops, cameras, & more with customers netting an average of $100 per device. That's right, the customer, YOU, sending them the old gadgets, gets paid! The company promises one thing to each customer which I thought was extremely valuable to know.
Gazelle promises that no item will ever up in a landfill.
