Gazelle accepts used electronics, including Cell Phones, Laptops, Digital Cameras, MP3 Players, Video Games, PDAs, Gaming Consoles, GPS Devices, Movies, Camcorders, Desktops, LCD Monitors, Satellite Radios, Calculators, External Drives, Camera Lenses, Projectors, Streaming Media, Home Audio, and Blu-Ray Players.  After signing up for an account, you submit the items you’d like to sell.  Gazelle offers you a price and, if you accept, sends you a postage-paid box for your items.  Once they receive and inspect your items, they will send NMLC a check for the sale amount.  The gadgets themselves are either resold for reuse (after all personal information is removed) or responsibly recycled.

Featured by CNN, the Today Show, the Wall Street Journal, and the New York Times, www.gazelle.com is a wonderful way to recycle unwanted gadgets while helping to open NMLC’s new marine animal hospital.

  1. Thanks, Eric! I’ll look into why Gazelle.com doesn’t have us listed. I appreciate the feedback.

  2. Um, I am sorry but just donated a bunch of items to the Ocean Conservancy because I did not see your name on the list of charities on the gazelle.com website. You might want to specify somewhere on here how to go about that so the National Marine Life Center gets the proceeds. Good luck and keep up the hard work!
