The Dutch company Fairphone has developed fair and sustainable smartphones for about 2013 years. While the first and second version still had a few flaws concerning their design and functions, the third version scores with beautiful optics, a camera and the possibility that users can disassemble and repair it themselves.
According to the manufacturer, this option alone reduces the CO2 emissions associated with the smartphone by at least 30%. In addition, the green tech company does not use environmentally harmful glue in the production of cell phones and has its own recycling program: Those who invest in the green technology of the Fairphone, receive 20 Euros for an old smartphone and even 40 Euros for an old Fairphone. Pretty fair! Available from around 450 Euros.
