Make our Planet Happy!
Why we created GreenPhone ?
We have often been confronted with this concern that many entrepreneurs encounter. What am I going to do with all this electronic waste? The idea came to us : RECYCLING. It’s a reality today, recycling concerns everyone. By becoming aware of the negative impact of electronic waste on the nature. The answer to the question “Why we created GreenPhone?” will appear as evidence.
Making a phone, why is it harmful?
A phone consists of 50% metals, 40% plastics and 10% glass and ceramics.
The industry uses many different metals for making our smartphones. It contains twenty different metals, such as lead, arsenic, chromium or cobalt. And Some of them like lead, mercury or arsenic have devastating effects on nature.
Disastrous social consequences
Also the extraction of these raw materials is devastating socially. Firstly because it is done in very bad conditions. Effectively in Congo, for example, more than 40,000 children would work in cobalt and coltan mines. Moreover these mines are generally located in conflict zones.
The situation is terrible but not desperate. To combat these problems, a simple solution: RECYCLING.
Recycling: a solution that is still underdeveloped
Do not throw your phones and other electronic waste in the garbage.
For 10,000 recycled phones, a recycling company recovers and reuses approximately 80 kg of copper.But also 130 grams of gold and 700 grams of silver, among others.
Why GreenPhone is the solution you should use?
The second technical life of your mobile phone can therefore be doubly supportive: a good action and a preservation of the environment.
