“Envirofone has got nothing to do with recycling....”

Written on: 18/05/2009

Good Points
clever people, one of the best running dodgy businesses in the last few years (sarcastically... )

Bad Points
cheats, liers, tricking people to get money using the good name of our planet...

General Comments
Envirofone has got nothing to do with recycling. Basicly, they buy the phones for refurbishment to sell them afterwards for higher price (that's why they test phones to grade them - the better phone's condition the less money they spend to repair/refurbish it). It is just a trick, nice catch, using "ENVIRO" in the company's name... do net get fooled!!!

We ' re sorry you feel this way; the first step of any recycling process is re-use and prolonging the life of an electronic good helps to reduce the demand for new ones reducing the impact on our planet ' s natural resources. We do make a profit from the business which means we can continue to exist and ensure mobile phones are re-used or disposed of in an environmentally friendly way, if they have reached the end of their life cycle. We continually strive to improve our own green credentials as an organisation including waste management, recruiting staff from local areas and reducing our electricity use, and encourage our customers to carbon off-set the use of their mobile phone when they ' re trading it in with us. Our full recycling / re-use policy is available on our website at http://www.envirofone.com/how-it-works/ we do not try to disguise the fact that this is the model our business operates on and our proud to be the UK ' s largest recycler of mobile phones.
