We're aiming to get unused handsets back into the market by creating a circular economy for phones. We do this through our phone trade-in offer giffgaff Recycle, so that your old handsets can be re-used. And those that can't - can be ethically recycled. Reducing mobile e-waste and reducing the number of phones that go to a landfill is a fundamental part of our evolving sustainability strategy. But it doesn't stop there. Our SIM packs already use 95% recyclable paper, which is FSC accredited. We also use HP Indigo printing which is helping us to reduce our wastage to nearly zero. Compared to the traditional printing method, which allows 5-10% waste during production.
We’ve also partnered with the Neighbourly Foundation, so you can donate part of the value of your phone and help make a difference to local communities.
