Sprint targets greener future with its Sprint Buyback and Sprint Project Connect programs
To commemorate America Recycles Day, Sprint is urging you to join its eco-friendly programs, named Sprint Buyback and Sprint Project Connect. It's obvious that the third-largest US carrier is taking a lot of pride from the fact that it's the most environmentally-friendly carrier in the States and number 6 among all US companies, according to Newsweek's 2010 Green ranking.

So welcome to the the first of its two green programs – Sprint Buyback. It offers you a sum between $5 and $300 for your old or unused device – and because it's for a good cause – Sprint will accept your gadget regardless of your carrier or manufacturer.

If your handset doesn't comply with Sprint Buyback's requirements, you can nevertheless donate your device or some other mobile accessory to the other eco-friendly program by the carrier – Sprint Project Connect. This initiative offers you to recycle your used wireless phones, batteries, accessories and data cards. All funds gathered by Sprint Project Connect go to Sprint's 4NetSafety program, that helps "to promote free Internet safety resources for kids, parents and educators."

These are good initiatives and we all know that Sprint loves to sell environmentally-friendly phones like the Samsung Reclaim, LG Remarq and Samsung Restore. So, if you feel like disposing your old phone and helping mother nature – this is your chance to act.
