In our mobile phones department, we also have developed refurbishing.
When the phone seems completely obsolete, really used, incomplete, no longer works or is broken, we have the opportunity in many cases to restore it.
If this is not the case, the undamaged components will be used as spare parts for repairing other phones.
Then, the refurbished items are reset in order to clear the memory. It is only after this stage that they will be sold in sets for export, often in developing countries, where access to means of communication is necessary but with limited budgets.
On the other hand, refurbishing can reduce waste and helps a little more limiting our environmental footprint.
In regards to this specific activity, Helvetrade S.A. is in partnership with Terre des Hommes Suisse, which works to protect the rights of children around the word: solidarcomm
A substantial portion of the profits obtained are thus returned to fund various humanitarian projects developed and supported by the association.
Individual or business, if you have unused phones that seem good to throw, especially do not dispose and think of us.
