Every year, consumers throw away millions of mobile phones since most phones aren’t built to last and we’re constantly encouraged to upgrade our devices. While some of these discarded phones are properly recycled, others are recycled under dangerous working conditions or end up in landfills.
We sell spare parts and offer repair tutorials to help make your phone useful for as long as possible. Our take-back program supports the reuse and recycling of your old phones, and we’re also researching the best way to recycle our phones. Finally, we’re working with partners to improve local collection efforts in countries struggling with electronic waste.
