An electronics store in Vietnam is ringing in the holidays with a 15-feet Christmas tree made from more than 2500 unusable cellular phones.

Nguyen Trai, a store manager at Westcom Electronics in the southern city of My Tho, revealed that around 10 workers spent two weeks in  building the cellular Christmas tree . He hopes that this concept  will raise awareness about hazardous waste and promote environmental responsibility.

Between 700 and 800 people visit daily, Trai told the reporters .

Westcom Electronics plans to auction its cellphone tree next year and donate the proceeds to charity, said store manager Nguyen Trai

Solid waste management is among the “major environmental burdens” in developed and developing countries across Asia, especially in mega cities & this concept will help in creating awareness among people all over the world , the UN says.
