What are the benefits?
Unlike other online sales Web sites between private resell used devices with greater security.
Other advantages also favor the environment, on average Italians abandon their devices in the drawers and replaced by new and the research talks about an abandonment of about 20 millions per year, moreover, for most cases these devices are fully functional.
Because of these behaviors there are two main problems:
- As is well known, our devices contain precious resources such as: gold, aluminum and cobalt, these resources are often mined in the poorest parts of the planet such as Asia, Africa and South America by poor workers and in state of insecurity, very often even minors, under inhumane conditions. Keeping these devices in a state of neglect and unused, increase the percentage of removing these precious materials from circulation and therefore increase the demand and need in recovering them again for the production of other devices.
- Very often unused devices are still functional and / or repairable. The production and sale of other new devices is caused by this abandonment of unused devices at home.
riCompro.it offers an incentive to preserve the precious materials contained in the devices and avoids CO2 emissions caused by the production of new smartphones.
Why avoid recycling your devices?
In cases where their cell phones are completely damaged the right solution is recycling, the same are still perfectly usable in most cases. In addition to the use of primary precious materials (including various types of rare earths), the production of other devices also causes up to 90 kg of CO2. riCompro.it provides users with services that help the environment by improving the impact on it with the right use of smartphones in terms of pollution, thus encouraging amassing electronic waste and reducing the waste of rare natural resources.
