Obviously, those who create the lamp phones believe that by turning a phone into a lamp they are keeping it out of the landfill and therefore are rescuing it.

Someone needs to make a lamp into a telephone.  That would drive 'em crazy.

I found this dusty old lamp and saved it by removing its innards, drilling some holes in the base and shade, and turning it into a working phone.
