How Much Can You Save By Leaving Your Phone Contract Behind?
Budgets are incredibly tight at the moment for consumers and businesses alike, we’re all looking for ways we can cut costs. There are lots of things we would consider naturally, like low energy appliances or smart bulbs, but we often overlook one of the most common items in our arsenal. Smartphones.
We all carry mobile phones, some of us even have a work phone too. But have we ever really considered the impact these items have on our planet, and the savings we could make on them?
We all view phones and data plans as necessities, and understandably so. When we're are out and about, they are must haves. But, a new phone releases around 85kg of CO2 emissions before it even reaches you - that’s 95% of the total emissions from its entire lifespan!
Getting yourself or your family refurbished phones can save you a huge amount of money - the savings could be up to 40% per handset! In addition to the savings, you will also be helping to lower your carbon footprint.
