The Environmental Benefits of Buying and Selling Used Smart Phones By Adam Fuller With the ozone layer slowly deteriorating and the environment suffering massive damage over the past few decades, it is vital the people begin to understand the detriments of their actions on the planet. Rather than idly stand by while the earth suffers such damages, you can take steps, minor or not, in ensuring that reuse and recycling take place in your own life. This can be as major as entering environmental law or policy, or as minor as recycling in your own life. In fact, even participating in blackberry buyback programs can be a great way to be environmentally friendly. Many people purchase new phones quite regularly, given that new models come out often from these major cell phone companies. However, while most people get new phones, their old phones often sit in their drawers at home, just sitting and collecting dust. If you have a collection of older flip phones, you might have some trouble selling them. However, you can donate them. By donating them, you are contributing to their reuse, where fewer phones are being manufactured. If you have some used smart phones though, you will be able to sell them and get some extra cash from it. Nowadays, many refurbishing companies have blackberry buy back programs that will allow you to sell your used phone to them. These companies use your phones for their spare parts to fix up phones for resale. Thus, they are willing to do blackberry buy back programs in order to get these parts for cheap. Purchasing these spare parts brand new from the factory can be expensive; however, by buying used phones from people like you, they are able to keep costs low because your used phone probably has more than a few working spare parts that they will reuse to refurbish their phones. They can keep costs low and sell their phones at a fraction of the cost as well. Thus, more people will opt to buy these cheaper alternatives to the brand new phones. The more of these refurbished phones that they purchase, the less that people will be buying new phones. The idea of reuse and recycling helps reduce manufacturing of new phones and thereby, helps with the contamination of the environment. In addition the environmental perks of the blackberry buy back program, there are a few extra perks as well. For the person selling the phone, they are getting some cash for an electronic device that they are no longer using. Chances are that they already have a new phone that surpasses the features of the old one. They might need it one day if their new phone breaks; however, at the moment, it is serving no purpose, so why not sell it for a few extra bucks to these companies who are willing to buy blackberries back. Another benefit is that people who are unable to buy these phones at retail value can choose to buy the refurbished phones at a fraction of the price. SOURCE: ezinearticles.com
