The explosive growth of cheap electronic devices has accelerated the planet’s pollution and to this day, only 20% of global e-waste is formally recycled.

There is a growing emphasis on environmental awareness, people want to know that whenever they purchase something, they are supporting a good cause and supporting a company that cares about something more than their own sales.

By creating a higher demand for refurbished products, RefurbMe can help reduce the amount of e-waste, making a bigger impact. And thanks to RefurbMe, it is really easy for them to find what they want, compare the different options, and buy exactly what they need.
