Short description:

Over one billion cellphones are manufactured each year and the environmental impact of this is not only massive but extremely underreported. Fairphone will go through the importance of repairability and reuse and Since they're there they will be repairing broken Fairphones and recycling your old devices. Fairphone will go through the importance or repairability and reuse. They will empoweryou to claim you ability to reuse and repair your electronic devices and show you how you can do this. Since Fairphone is there anyways, we will be fixing Fairphones and other phones. We are hoping to collect 50 old phones so that we can recycle them and give them a new life!

Goal / impact

Did you know that you need around 129 grams from more than 30 minerals to manufacture a phone? If we reach our goal with this 100 phones we will be able to reuse 3.111 grams of Aluminum, 659 grams of Cobalt, 784 grams of Copper, 1,4 grams of Gold, 66 grams of Tin and much more! That means we won't have to source these grams of natural resources to make more phones. By receiving these old phones and helping them get recycled all these minerals will get a new life - meaning less sourcing of new materials and less of a strain on the environment!

We hope to be able to collect 50 phones to recycle them properly and recover the precious materials that are inside them.
