CTIA goes eco-friendly

Like many conventions this spring, CTIA Wireless 2008 has caught the green bug. The convention will be promoting environmental-friendly causes such as recycling cell phones and badges. Specifically, CTIA will have phone recycling stations throughout the Las Vegas Convention Center where attendees can drop of old phones and accessories. Proceeds will go to the Call To Protect Program, which benefits domestic violence organizations. Likewise, there will be bins for attendees to recycle badges at the end of the conference. The association has reduced its three-part badge to just a single badge. Finally, CTIA is working with the Las Vegas Convention Center to make sure that all paper, plastic, cardboard, glass, wood and aluminum products from the show will be sorted and recycled at the end of the convention. -Sue
