The new era in technology is forcing us to Think Big. Therefore, sustainability is becoming imperative in preserving our natural resources and making the life cycle of every Mobile Phone longer than initially anticipated. Thus, FoneBucks has adopted new ways to increase the life cycle of every Mobile Phone by another two to three years. The process is time-consuming but the outcome is environmentally friendly. We recycle or refurbish every used part from LCD to semi-conductors to make sure that nothing ends up in landfills. We believe in the concept of sustainability with our Think Big initiative.

Overall benefits to the society are immeasurable. If we can add another two to three years to every Mobile Phone in the world we can reduce global warming by 30% which will be a significant benefit to everyone.

Economic benefits can also be derived from this new Think Big initiative by offering new jobs to the economy to support the recycling and refurbishing regime to become main stream.

Benefits to the environment will be apparent by adopting the Think Big initiative, which offers another two to three years to every Mobile Phones’ life cycle. Therefore, this regime will help to reduce CO2 significantly. According to an estimate, 968 terawatts hours of electricity has been used to produce 7 billion Smartphones thus contributing toward global warming and greenhouse gases.


FoneBucks understands the global environmental concerns. Therefore, we are committed to increase the life cycle of every Mobile Phone by two to three years which is critical in preserving the natural resources. Since 2008 more than 7 billion new Smartphones have entered the market and numbers grow on a daily basis. So, it is our responsibility by making sure that more and more smartphones extend their life cycle. Thus, once we acquire the Mobile Phone, it goes through the overhauling or repairing process which adds another two to three years to its life.

Currently, more than 85 million Mobile Phones are sitting unused in the drawers of UK households which can be re-used as the demand for second-hand Mobile Phones rises in the UK. By doing this, the manufacturers will be forced to put less pressure on the natural resources to acquire the raw materials required to produce a new Mobile Phone.
