Up to 84% of a device’s carbon footprint is produced predominately during the extraction of raw materials and the initial device production and distribution.**
why buy refurbished
Apple devices are designed to last, but often great tech will find early retirement as they’re replaced with the latest models or when large businesses have staff changes.
We work hard to source the best used Apple devices, refurbish them to the highest standards and reintroduce them back into circulation. This extends each product’s life, puts those raw materials back to use and greatly reduces e-waste generated from overconsumption.
Our standards of inspection and testing mean that not all Macs get the HM Approved classification. For those devices that can not be sold, we safely and consciously dispose of e-waste using the
The Waste Electrical or Electronic Equipment Directive - WEEE for short. Find out more about this process here.
