Save the Environment

Do you have any old phones or tablets lying around your house? Unwanted gifts just gathering dust? Why not sell them to FoneWizard and let us magic them into money for you, freeing up some shelf space and helping the environment at the same time!

With roughly 80 million devices in UK homes sitting unused and unloved, we can give them a new home to live out the rest of their electronic lives!

There isn’t a single person out there that hasn’t benefited or relied on some form of electronic device at some point. They can bring the world closer, allow us to be better connected, direct us, entertain us and also inform us.

However, there is an increasing concern with how discarded electronic devices can impact upon our environment, with many of our smartphones and tablets being made from components that are harmful to our environment. Just throwing them away isn’t enough as they will end up in landfill and as they degrade will release dangerous toxins into the earth.

The best way to avoid this is to proactively repair, recycle or reuse our electronics until they reach a point where it is no longer possible. They should then be disposed of in a safe and responsible way. If we were to actively recycle the millions of discarded devices each year we would save enough energy to power a city, and enough resources to make new devices without the need to further pollute the planet with more excavation and mining. Many of the metals used in our gadgets are rare metals such as silver and gold and are in limited supply.

So why not send us your old devices and earn some cash for doing your part to save our planet!
