However, you can still investigate the best times to recycle your old device to get more money for it. These typically include just before the launch of a new Samsung phone and during the Christmas period.
Samsung do not disclose just how much greenhouse gas is emitted during the mining and manufacturing processes of its smartphones. We do know that up to 80% of the total greenhouse gases from a mobile phone are emitted during these first stages in the phone’s life cycle. With every phone not sent to landfill, there are valuable materials that are kept in circulation, which in turn reduces the reliance on the earth’s natural resources.
