We can't change the way smartphones are made, but we are making the way you upgrade to your next phone more sustainable.
After all, how many times do old phones end up being banished to a drawer to gather dust for all eternity? Actually, we can tell you – one widely-cited estimate finds up to 125 million old phones are languishing in limbo, and that's in the UK alone.
We’ve found a smarter solution. When we upgrade you to a new phone every 24 months, we take your old phone back and either recycle it or find it a new home. That means fewer old phones being left to rot, or ending up in landfill. Moreover, we offer refurbished phones for the super sustainable customers out there.
The phone case we provide you with is 100% compostable, made from Flaxseed. And the box your phone comes in is likewise made from recycled materials and fully recyclable, making it easy to reduce environmental impact.
Tech shouldn't be toxic, and we’re committed to creating a virtuous circle that cuts waste and promotes green behaviour at an everyday level. Finally, to help even further we will be making a donation to Plastic Oceans UK for every Raylo customer that signs up.
