Circular Phone Purchasing & Reuse

Closing the Loop believes the future of mobile technology has to be sustainable, ethical, open and kind.

We encourage mobile phone reuse but ensure it doesn’t cause harm in emerging markets.

We offer simple 1-for-1 reuse and offsetting services that recover and safely recycle scrap phones in Africa and Asia.

We help our customers play a positive role in a circular economy and our local partners to develop safe employment in emerging markets.


Client Cases

With their large employee headcount, Ahold also frequently disposes mobile phones and tablets. These include devices that have become obsolete, that have been damaged or that were owned by former employees. We buy these electronics and reuse them.

Royal Schiphol Group has taken a big step towards a circular business. By compensating the raw materials in their mobile phones, they have made their phone usage more circular and sustainable. In addition, their old & used phones will get a responsible new life in an emerging market.
