The phone industry has evolved considerably in recent years and this has definitely been the case in Britain. Many people do not realise just how vast and popular this mobile phone culture has become. Have a little think about your local shopping complex and you will soon realise that phone companies have a dominant presence on the high street. It is safe to say that the mobile phone industry has expanded hugely since its inception. Now it is one of the most successful business sectors around.
What started as an executive toy has evolved into a daily essential, for both materialistic and social purposes. It is estimated that more than 120 million people across Western Europe have access to this fingertip technology that has changed the face of communication in Britain.
With phones for the business conscious to the fashion conscious, mobile phones have become one of our most important accessories. They allow us handheld communication to anyone we desire at any time of the day, not forgetting internet access, calculators, converters, games, cameras, address books; you name it, you can have it. For many users, a mobile phone has become more than just an accessory; mobile phones are a major part of their life.
In the UK alone, it is estimated that the phone industry is worth a colossal £13 billion. However, it does also leave a huge surplus; many of the phones which have been made are not in use. This has allowed companies such as us, Mazuma Mobile, to offer 21st century phone recycling schemes to keep the environment safer. We know phone recycling makes economic and ecological sense.
