Back2Buzz - Back2Buzz sells refurbished smartphones combined with eco-friendly & biodegradable accessories in order to reduce the electronic waste mountain.
By refurbishing smartphones, the lifespan is expected to be increased from 21.6months to 33.6 months, reducing the total CO2 emissions, keeping the smartphone in a better state (cover and protector glass), and possibly give the device a third life &; increase job creation. The upcoming project is to activate a buy back program in order to reduce the number of hibernating devices (estimated at 88% of the total volume sold) and to increase the refurbishment rate and to increase the material recovery rate. Any initiative to increase the recycling rate has a direct impact on the use of raw and precious material. The distribution model is focussed on B2B customers and telecom operators. Buying a refurbished device has the following indirect benefits: lower CO2 emission, less raw material, less pollution, less unhealthy labour by extracting raw material.
