Flowers For Phones … Who Knew?

4_6_flowers_phones_graphic72dpiSomehow, I missed this and yet, I didn’t. Even though there clearly is a rain date of April 21 (today), the tents were up and flowers were being given away yesterday in the rain.

This is how it was supposed to work from their web announcement:

Stop by Farragut Square Park or Golden Triangle Park on Monday April 20 from 11:00am-2:00pm to recycle your used cell phone—it’s easy, free and tax deductible—and you’ll get a free flower for your home or office and a chance to win cool prizes from area shops and restaurants. It’s all part of the Golden Triangle’s Spring Cleanup Week to make the central business district look better than ever.

Flower for Phones, Farragut SquareIn reality, with all the rain, there were very few people out, and many flowers to be distributed. What ended up happening yesterday was a flower distribution with public awareness about recycling cell phones.

So, I have my daffodil, and encourage everyone who may have a used cell phone or PDA to go to the website and find out if you can still donate it for recycling. Its better than sitting in your dresser drawer, right?

Of course, there’s a good chance they will be out again today!!!daffodil on my desk
