Earth Day is a time to reflect on the impact our actions have on the planet and to take steps towards a more sustainable future. At Trademore, we believe that every small action can make a big difference, and that's why we're encouraging sustainable consumption through our phone trade-in program. We are thrilled to announce that starting Earth Day, April 22nd, until the end of this year, every trade-in or purchase of a phone with us will contribute to planting a tree. We believe the importance of doing our part to promote sustainability. Join us in celebrating Earth Day and making a difference in creating a more sustainable future.

Our Phone Trade-In Program

Here's how it works: Simply tell us about your current phone and we'll send you a shipping box for free or you can choose to print the shipping label and use a box you already have. Once you receive the box, mail us your phone back in the provided packaging. Our team will then review your device and provide you with the value of the phone in return.

Why plant trees? Trees play a vital role in the ecosystem by absorbing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and producing oxygen. By planting trees, we're able to offset the carbon emissions produced by the production and transportation of electronic devices, including phones. It's a small but impactful way to reduce our carbon footprint and promote sustainable practices.

Not only does our trade-in program benefit the environment, but it also benefits our customers.

Benefits of Trading In Your Phone

We understand that some people may be hesitant to trade in their phones, but the benefits are significant. When you trade in your old phone, you're preventing it from ending up in a landfill, where it can leach harmful chemicals into the soil and water. E-waste is a growing problem - according to the United Nations, the world generated 53.6 million metric tons of e-waste in 2019 alone. By choosing to trade in your phone with us, you're helping to reduce this number and keeping toxic materials out of our environment.

Promoting Sustainable Consumption

Another benefit of our phone trade-in program is that it promotes sustainable consumption. In today's fast-paced world, it can be tempting to constantly upgrade to the latest and greatest technology. But this constant cycle of consumption comes at a cost - both to our wallets and to the planet. By choosing to trade in your phone instead of buying a new one, you're extending the life of your device and reducing your carbon footprint.

Commitment to Sustainable Business Practices

In addition to our phone trade-in program, we're also committed to using sustainable business practices in our operations. We use recycled materials for our packaging, and we work with partners who share our commitment to sustainability.

In conclusion, Earth Day is a time to reflect on our impact on the planet and to take action towards a more sustainable future. At Trademore, we're doing our part by encouraging sustainable consumption through our phone trade-in program. By trading-in your phone with us, you're not only reducing e-waste, but also planting a tree and promoting sustainable consumption. It's a win-win situation for both you and the environment. Remember that from Earth Day, April 22nd until the end of 2023, for every device trade-in or purchase, we will plant a tree. Whether you are looking to trade-in your old phone or tablet or upgrade to a new refurbished phone or smartwatch, we are committed to making a positive impact on the environment. So, what are you waiting for? Trade in your phone with us today and make a positive impact on the environment.
