Patagonia uses recycled soda bottles to make clothing
There comes a time for every successful business to take a moment and look back at where they came from and determine where they want to move forward. While it takes a lot of work to get a business up and running, once you find the key to success, the next question is, how will we sustain, how will we contribute to our community and what legacy can we leave? For some businesses, this means expanding their current services or relocating their business to a more tax friendly or community friendly location. For some this means rebranding their company and for others it could mean redefining their core values and creating a culture in which those values are not only emphasized but carried out. Some call this corporate social responsibility. For outdoor outfitter, Patagonia, environmental and corporate responsibility is not just a pillar of success, but the only way to do business.
Cell phones these days change as often as most Americans’ attention span and there is always a question as to how to get rid of those old phones. According to NBC News, cell phones have a market life cycle of nine to 12 months before the next, newest and greatest model is out and on store shelves, leaving Americans wanting something new. So how should you properly get rid of your old cell phone to make way for a new one? There are a few options for properly disposing of your old phone in an economical way.
Prior to getting rid of your phone, make sure you remove any personal information that may be stored on it. First, make sure your information is all backed up onto the cloud or transfer it onto your new phone so you do not loose things such as your contacts or photos. Then perform a factory reset on the old phone to erase all of your contacts and other information. After you’ve reset it, make sure all of the information is truly gone. Make sure to remove your SIM or SD card so nobody can get information off of that either.
