Bouygues Telecom launches 'sustainable smartphone' campaign

Tuesday 25 May 2021 | 11:27 CET | News
French operator Bouygues Telecom is renewing its efforts to support mobile phone users in adopting sustainable practices when dealing with their devices. As part of a new "sustainable smartphone" programme, it will encourage its customer base to extend the life of their handsets, and give them or their components a second life. The initiative is based on a four-pronged approach that will provide owners with practical ways to repair, trade in and recycle their smartphones, while also offering buyers reconditioned models for sale.
