Eric Koston & Friends Show You How Phones Affect The Environment

We eat, sleep, and do bathroom stuff all with our phones in hand. But have we ever really checked in on how it affects the environment? Berrics co-founder Eric Koston breaks down how a renewed smartphone helps prevent toxic e-waste, produces way less carbon emissions, prevents raw materials from being mined, and even saves water. Buying a refurbished phone isn’t going to save the world, but it is a painless way to help (and it keeps your wallet fat, not flat). Koston, Samarria Brevard, Tyler Peterson, and Mariah Duran demonstrate the effects that phone manufacturing has on the environment in the above edit… the perfect Earth Day video hype.
