LEAVE NO TRACE
WE REPAIR & REFURBISH FOR REUSE EVERY DEVICE WE RECEIVE
SO WE #LEAVENOTRACE
Technological innovation can be a force for both lowering and increasing the damage to nature. We need to make sure that we use it as a sustainable driver of economic growth, pushing ahead with new technologies which create the prosperity and know-how to keep the earth healthy, but doing so in a sustainable way, extending the lifecycle of redundant equipment, while reducing carbon emissions and the use of raw materials.
Redundant tech can no longer be discarded, but must be repaired and reused in a new life elsewhere. What is old in one application is an upgrade to someone else.
If we are to make a real change in reducing carbon emissions and the need for extraction of more scarce raw materials, we must adopt circular economy business models, refurbishing and reusing tech – our planet’s future depends on such action.
40 MILLION TONS OF ELECTRONIC WASTE EVERY YEAR IS THROWN AWAY, WORLDWIDE. THAT’S LIKE THROWING 800 LAPTOPS EVERY SECOND
The longer equipment is in use, the lighter its impact on the earth and when it genuinely reaches the end of its useful life, the materials contained within it must be recycled and reused, and #LeaveNoTrace.
We are expert at refurbishing tech and giving it a new life by redeploying to those in need. At least 80% of the devices we receive are able to be repaired and reused. Any devices that are end of life are used for spares and, as a last resort, the material components are recycled ensuring that no devices end up in landfill and we #LeaveNoTrace.
