What is the impact of mobiles on the planet?

Mobiles are made from many non-renewable materials which have been extracted from the earth - such as metals, plastics, glass and ceramics. These resources are precious and only exist in finite quantities, it is therefore important to conserve them, as well as limit further use.

How can we achieve this? Well, it is actually pretty simple. Instead of leaving old mobiles to rattle around in drawers and cupboards, we need to recycle them.


Did you know…

·       Over 90% of the materials used in mobiles and accessories can be recovered.

·       These materials can be used to make everything from stainless steel to plastic fence posts.

·       Mobile phones are not biodegradable and should never be thrown out.  They contain some materials that can potentially harm the environment if not handled correctly at the end of a phone's useful life.

·       Recycling 50,000 devices can remove the need to mine 110 tonnes of gold ore, 213 tonnes of silver bearing ore or 11 tonnes of copper sulphide ore.

·       For every tonne of mobile phone materials recovered 10 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions are avoided.


When you recycle or trade-in your old phones and accessories with TechTrader you'll be:

1.)   Making some extra cash.

2.)   Protecting our precious environment.

3.)   Saving scare natural resources.

4.)   Avoiding future greenhouse gases
