I URGENTLY needed a new cell phone!
The one I had so far is an iPhone 6, which I inherited from Patrik several years ago. And this summer it simply shattered… 🥴
It still took me some time to accept that I do need a new cell phone (“but, it still works…”). Erm… no, there was simply no way around it! *grumble*
Luckily, I stumbled over “Revendo”, though.
This Swiss company has been founded in 2013 and their philosophy is to reduce electronic waste and preserve resources. So they recycle/upcycle used devices, such as screens, laptops, smartphones, accessories….. The gadgets will be updated, cleaned, emptied (of course) and sold for a lower price as a brand-new one. Exactly, what I was looking for 😄
OK, you might have to be flexible with the colour, but usually a cell phone sits in a trendy case anyway.
And – ta-daaa – I found the perfect “new” cell for me, it’s an iPhone 11, as good as new, with a one- year warranty! There, my demand to purchase as sustainable as possible has been fulfilled!
I know that soon one day I’ll need a new laptop…. The one I have now is – surprise – Patrik’s old one.
However, when the day comes, I already know where to look 😎
