You too can adopt a Mobo and participate in the eco-friendly collection of used mobiles


an initiative for eco-citizens - innovative and fun

Mobo collects used mobile phones to help the environment and society. The mobile phones are collected, sorted, checked and refurbished by the Ateliers du Bocage (AdB), an Emmaüs-member company specializing in professional and social re-insertion.

All revenues from the collection of mobile phones finance AdB’s operations in France and the development of recycling networks in Africa. Every collection box installed and every mobile phone donated contributes to jobs creation and the preservation of rare resources.

why get involved?

Promoting Mobo means participating in a fun and innovative project with a commitment to sustainable development. It's also choosing a differentiating eco-friendly approach, both through the functions offered (such as tracking the donation) and the marketing and communications potential.

adopting mobo

Available in your brand colours, this “smart” collection box reacts when a user places a mobile phone in it for recycling. Equipped with sensors and connected to the Internet, it continuously transmits its position and indicates how full it is to the collecting team at the Ateliers du Bocage. We maintain and operate all the interactive Mobo without further involvement from you.
