Funky Phone Challenge
As part of LUGO’s focus on responsible recycling of e-waste (electronic waste) we participated in the Funky Phone Challenge.
For one month we battled against other research universities and universities of applied sciences in the Netherlands to collect as many mobile phones as possible. All the phones were collected in an e-waste arcade, meaning that in return for depositing a phone you could play a fun game. After a fierce battle and some nerve-wracking last days LUGO came first in the competition! Thanks to the help of staff and students of Leiden University we collected 251 mobile phones, which have been recycled in a way that is good for the environment and for workers.
