When buying a new smartphone, recycle yours by selling it through applications or programmes that give you a discount when buying a new one or accessories, or give you money back according to its estimated value (see Samsung.com, Apple.com etc.)

Advantages of using smartphones  

There are clear and obvious advantages of using your phone, especially when:

  •  you travel or you are on the road; 
  • you are far away from your PC or laptop;  
  • your laptop battery runs out of charge and no charger plug/ power bank is within reach;
  • if you are working remote you still have access to the online documents even when not expected to need them;
  • is less paper used, less threes cutted and no extra weight carried with you.
