Renewed vs New
Manufacturing a new smartphone produces about 86.63 lbs of CO2e.
Renewing? Just 6.8kg lbs. Lose the weight: no extra effort, just extra savings.
Hot Tub Time Machine
Some might say that’s what a renewed phone is. A new phone uses up about 73 hot tubs worth of water.
Buy renewed and you’ll save 60 hot tubs worth. And through this mental gymnastics, you, a totally reasonable person, could maybe justify 25 hot tub parties...
Keep metal Alive
Electronic devices are hardcore metal. We mean literally loaded with heavy metals.
309kg of raw materials need to be dug up to produce a single smartphone. Keep metal alive…by keeping it in circulation. Buy renewed electronics that Slay.
Let go of toxic relationships
What do you get when you buy a new phone? 199 grams of electronic waste.
E-waste is toxic.
Like, lead and mercury in your water toxic. Let that fish go, and choose renewed. All the flash minus the trash (and the toxic environment that comes that).
