Sell My Phone

Why should I sell my phone?

Most people are trying to reduce their cost of living, and the quickest way for the majority of them will be to sell their phone. 

84% of UK adults own a smartphone, that is just under 50 million people! When you consider the role that mobile phones play in our modern lives, this is a huge number of electronic devices in circulation at any one time. The fact that most of us are upgrading our handsets every 18 months has led to unsustainable consumption of electronic devices. Shockingly, many of the 1.5 billion mobile phones manufactured every year are ending up in landfill sites, often when they are still in good working condition.


This is a serious health hazard as a single mobile phone battery contains enough cadmium to pollute up to 600,000 litres of water! But it doesn't have to be this way. Not only is choosing to sell your old phone an environmentally conscious act, it is also a great way to earn some cash; it's a no brainer! Whether through selling your device or mobile phone trade-in, you will be helping to keep working phones stay in use for longer and therefore help us move towards a more sustainable future.
