If you are in need of a new phone, why not have a look at some of the most eco friendly phones of 2023. This list includes some of the big names that you are probably familiar with — like Samsung and Apple — as well as some lesser-known brands. But we are sure that you will find the perfect phone for you and your needs.
We think that sustainability is something that should be driving technological innovation. We are always interested in seeing what companies and brands are doing to make their products and methods more sustainable and environmentally friendly. This is also part of the reason why we would like to let you know about the most eco-friendly phones of 2023.
iPhone 14 Pro – according to Apple this is their greenest model of phone so far. This model is made with 100% recycled gold in the camera wires, and 100% recycled rare earth materials for all of the magnets. It also has 6% lower emissions compared to the iPhone 13 Pro.
Samsung Galaxy s22 series – This is the company’s premier option for sustainable smartphones, 20% of a standard Galaxy S22 model is made from reclaimed fishing nets, which is one of the leading sources of ocean plastic pollution. In addition to this unique sustainable practice, there are also recycled post-consumer materials in the speaker, volume, and power keys, while all product packaging is made from 100% recycled paper and plastic materials.
Fairphone 4 – This brand of phone is B Corp certified and Blue Angel certified. The phone has a 100% recycled back cover, uses aluminium from the Aluminium Stewardship Initiative, and for each phone that they sell, they will recycle the equivalent.
Teracube 2E – For buyers who are looking for a phone without expensive additions you can find in fancier models, the Teracube 2E is a high-concept phone with an admirably long warranty and some serious environmental credibility. This phone is made from recycled polycarbonate with a biodegradable phone case and also requires 50% less packaging than other phones on the market. Another great thing is that for every phone sold, Teracube plants a tree.
Motorola Edge – Famous for their flip phone that dominated the 2000s, Motorola has somewhat fallen out of favour with many consumers who now prefer Apple and Samsung products. For people on the lookout for sustainable smartphones, the Motorola Edge is a worthy offering. The company has removed mercury or cadmium from the batteries of all phones, and it’s also replaced the harmful plastic PVC and BFR, a mix of synthetic chemicals.
If you are keeping an eye out for a new phone this year but want to make sure that it is going to be a sustainable and eco-friendly choice, we think that the ones from this list should be a good fit for you. Alternatively, if you think they are a bit on the pricier side or want to get a pre-owned one, there are many benefits to buying a refurbished phone.
