Replacing your smartphone every two and a half years is not uncommon. In fact, it’s by design.
The consumer electronics industry is fraught with unethical business practices, from planned obsolescence to the dark side of cobalt mining, to the 40 million tons of electronic waste that's generated each year. In this episode, we learn about Fairphone, a social enterprise that creates smartphones that are both repairable and built to last. We also share how the circular economy and “Right to Repair” movement is a win for consumers, companies, and the planet.
Featuring: Nathan Proctor, Senior Director of Right to Repair campaigns at the U.S. Public Interest Research Group, Joe Iles, Circular Design Programme Lead at the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, Eva Gouwens, CEO of Fairphone, and Juan Pablo Larenas, Executive Director of B Lab Global.
