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
