Recycle your old electronics and get rewarded with brand new ones. Sounds like a utopian world where donuts rain from the sky and Beyonce shows up at your bedside to sing you lullabies, right? Well we can’t vouch for the last two, but swapping your old, broken tablet for a brand new one on the cheap is a real thing, thanks to UpWise.

The geniuses over at UpWise created the service to help de-clutter your collection of defunct iPhones while hooking you up with new products that suit your electronic needs, all in an effort to encourage the recycling of those busted old things you have scattered around the apartment. The concept is simple: purchase a new electronic from the site and they’ll send you a prepaid recycle mailer for your old product. Seal it up, send it off, and you’ve just gone green.

UpWise carries everything from earbuds to tablets from brands like Samsung and Sony, but sorry Apple sheeple, they don’t sell any Apple products except for cases for your various iDevices. If you don’t care much about brand, this seems like a great way to reduce your e-waste and stock up on some new gadgets for the holidays, so get to shopping.
