This smartphone company aims for the Right to Repair: “If you can’t open it, you can’t own it”

The mass production of smartphones in mega factories, of course, also greatly contributes to climate change with 85%-95% of a smartphone’s overall carbon footprint produced during the production process. The batteries, integrated circuits, speakers, and screens used to manufacture smartphones — along with every other single component that goes into their manufacture — are themselves mass-produced, creating carbon footprints, heat emissions, and environmental pollution of their own.

        Repairable electronics are better for the environment and consumers' wallets because of this fact alone. The growth of the movement to over 40 organizations in Europe is inspiring, and I look forward to seeing them spread to Africa. Congrats to Fairphone!

          That is a very true slogan. All electronics should be built to be easy to repair
