The International Data Corporation provides market intelligence around the world. They advise electronics companies who specialise in information technology and telecommunications. In a recent report however, the IDC told phone manufacturers that they need to do much more to improve their environmental impact and work towards a greener mobile phone industry.
The IDC welcomed some recent improvements to mobile phone technology. The new solar powered charger currently in development by LG is a good start to the reduction of waste, also Samsung’s efforts to reduce the amount of brominated flame retardant materials used on most mobile phone circuit boards, and totally phase out the use of hard to break down polyvinyl chlorides (PVC) from all their mobile phones.
Apple received some praise too as a leader in influencing its supply chain towards greener technology. Apple also has recycling facilities in 95% of the nations where they sell their products, but according to the IDC only 10% of all mobiles get recycled.
Nokia was found to be good in the area of recyclable materials, with up to 80% of their phone materials being used elsewhere at the end of the phones lifetime. Nokia also does very well at using recycled materials in their new technologies. And Sony Ericsson have done well on their reduction of packaging, using lighter materials and moving to electronic manuals to reduce the need for paper.
With all these efforts to make phone recycling more efficient, why not do your part by selling mobile phones you no longer need to us at Mazuma Mobile.
has now introduced tablet recycling and the company anticipates there will be a considerable increase in people wanting to upgrade to the latest model, particularly with the launches of new tablets such as the Apple iPad 2, Dell Streak, BlackBerry PlayBook, Motorola XOOM and HTC Flyer.
The recent launch of the iPad 2 and announcement of equivalent Android devices has seen a surge in demand for tablet recycling from Mazuma customers. The Mazuma service has been expanded to provide the same level of customer service and payment options to tablets that Mazuma consumers are used to expecting when they recycle their mobile phone.
Consumers understand that they can use the value of their old phone or device as a way to offset the cost of upgrading to a new model. Apple iPad owners are more likely to upgrade to the new iPad 2 if they are able to easily sell their old iPad and offset the value against the purchase of the iPad2.
Mazuma currently pay upto £165 for your old Apple iPad and upto £125 for your old Samsung P1000 Galaxy Tab.
Sony Ericsson has agreed to the European Commission’s request, and will soon be changing to a universal phone charger. It is a surprising about face for the Swedish company that joined with Japanese electronics giant Sony in 2001. Previously they had always been resolute about keeping their own design for a mobile charger, but the pressure from the European Commission to reduce the waste has meant big changes ahead.
Apple also will be dropping their own charger in favour for the mini USB port, along with a whole host of other mobile manufacturers such as LG, Motorola, Samsung and Nokia. For Apple it is a big surprise as all their current technology runs on their own dock connector, and they have had good success it leasing the technology out to other firms.
From the consumer’s point of view there are many advantages. For a start there is no reason to throw out all those old phone chargers. With just one simple connection people will soon stack up a fair few viable chargers. With that in mind there will come a time where manufacturers can omit the charger completely and have it instead as a separate purchasable entity. Less chargers being produced has to have a good impact on their carbon footprints.
