Why can't I throw a broken smartphone in the trash?

Very often, in the presence of a broken phone, the user, without thinking, throws it in the trash, thereby causing great trouble to the whole environment. We, as an environmental company, strongly advise against doing so. So why can't you take your phone and just throw it away? Let's understand...

Each of the companies that produces electronic products today has its own recycling program, as all responsible manufacturers have the necessary skills and technologies to recycle the device in the most environmentally friendly way. In addition, many companies, including ICOOLA, will offer a reward for a broken phone.

Of course, most users think that you can only sell/exchange a working device, but an old broken phone is hardly worth anything. As an eco-brand, we constantly say that even a smartphone in the worst condition costs some money, and giving it to us, you will not only save nature, but also get a nice cash bonus, to later, for example, buy an iPhone 7 Plus or another model.

Note that the body of any smartphone is made of plastic or metal. If the metal is still able to decompose over a period of time, the plastic will lie in the ground for centuries. In addition, the metal can be remelted, and burning plastic will emit a huge amount of toxic substances into the atmosphere. One of the sensible solutions for plastic processing is, for example, the method of hydrolysis, where the plastic is not burned, but split with an aqueous acid solution. The ideal solution for plastic processing was used by the people of India. One of the companies crushed plastic and used the obtained crumbs in the construction of new roads. Thus in India there were more than 34 thousand km. roads.

How can i use an old mobile phone?

If you still have an old but working smartphone at home and you do not know what to do with it, but do not want to sell at all, it can be easily used as:

  • Educational smartphone for children - for example, you can give it to a child who will learn to work with a mobile phone;
  • Alarm clock - the gadget can be used only as an alarm clock;
  • MP3 player - an old gadget is perfect as a good MP3 player. If you use the main smartphone for these purposes, then in the evening, often, the battery almost runs out.
  • GPS - Tired of using your main phone as a GPS for your car, take your old device and set it up for this feature.
  • In the end, you can give it to someone.

Friends, the number of smartphones used by the inhabitants of the Earth today has reached 1 billion. A huge number of them are emitted every year. And sad statistics show that only 3% of broken gadgets are disposed of properly. Don't throw away your own gadgets, because we, as an eco-company ICOOLA, will be happy to take them into our own hands for recycling. Rent your iPhone for spare parts - save nature.
