It’s no secret that we live in a world where smartphones have become an essential part of our daily lives. From keeping in touch with loved ones to playing games and browsing the web, these devices have revolutionized how we live and interact with people around us. But with this incredible ability comes a meaningful obligation to act responsibly, and that’s where our commitment at Mobile Klinik comes in. We’re not just about repairing and selling mobile devices — we also care about building a more sustainable world, one phone at a time.
In observance of Earth Day, we want to share our commitment to sustainability and show you how we’re making a positive impact through our core services. So, whether you’re a tech enthusiast or just someone who cares about our planet, we invite you to join us on this journey toward a greener future!
How Mobile Klinik is Promoting a Sustainable World
“Since its inception, Mobile Klinik has been striving for a more sustainable world by pursuing a circular economy through offering Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) devices, premium quality repairs and the option to sell or trade-in your older devices. This Earth Day, I am proud to share Mobile Klinik’s impact on the circular economy through its sales of over 180,000 CPO devices and repairs of 570,000 devices since 2016. Given that choosing a CPO device produces 86% less carbon dioxide than buying a new device, we are proud of our impact on sustainability thus far and know that our work is not yet done. This year, we plan to continue to evolve our commitment further and make an even greater impact in our pursuit of sustainability.” — Dan Quick, President, Mobile Klinik.
We’re committed to promoting a sustainable world through various initiatives that support environmental conservation. We recognize the importance of protecting the planet for future generations and are determined to play our part in achieving this goal. Here’s how we support sustainability:
Mobile Device Repairs
Instead of simply encouraging you to purchase a new phone at first sight of trouble, our professional repair services can help you get your device up and running like new again. This not only saves you money, but it also reduces electronic waste, which is a major contributor to environmental degradation. Extending your device’s lifespan aligns with sustainability principles — the longer we can use a product, the more we reduce the demand for production and disposal, which can lower carbon emissions.
Certified Pre-Owned Phones
Every year, millions of phones are discarded and end up in landfills, contributing to a growing problem of e-waste. Our Certified Pre-Owned devices are carefully inspected and tested to ensure they meet our high-quality standards, so you’ll never have to worry about receiving faulty technology. Each phone is refurbished and updated to ensure it’s in top condition, providing a reliable and cost-effective alternative to purchasing a new phone.
This practice also positively impacts the environment by reducing the resources needed to produce new phones, which reduces carbon emissions and other forms of pollution.
Buying Your Used Phone
Another way we promote sustainability is by buying your used phone and taking responsibility for its proper disposal or refurbishment. Recycling electronics can be complex, especially with the number of unique materials they contain. Only 12% of phones in Canada get recycled. We’re here to ensure we contribute to increasing that percentage. Additionally, if your cell phone is re-sellable, we will inspect, test, refurbish, and find it a new home.
Overall, our approach to buying your used phone encourages you to support electronic longevity, reducing waste in our landfills and the carbon footprint associated with production demands for brand-new smartphones.
Our Impact by the Numbers
We’re proud to say that our commitment to sustainability is not just a goal but a measurable achievement:
- To date, we have sold over 184,000 Certified Pre-Owned devices, allowing our customers to contribute to a greener future while reaping the benefits of a reliable and cost-efficient device.
- Our expert technicians have completed over 570,106 repairs. That’s the life extension of hundreds of thousands of devices, preventing them from becoming e-waste.
Building a Sustainable World One Phone at a Time
At Mobile Klinik, we believe that building a sustainable world is a responsibility we all share. We care deeply about how our products and services promote eco-conscious thinking because, at the end of the day, our actions in the present will have a profound impact on the planet we leave for future generations.
The mobile phone industry can significantly affect the environment, from the resources used to produce new devices to the electronic waste generated by improper disposal. That’s why we’ve made it our mission to promote sustainable practices and reduce our e-waste through our services.
