Telstra MVNO Belong, now offering refurbed smartphones
Telstra’s carbon neutral MVNO, Belong, has announced that it has partnered with Kingfisher to launch Second Life Phones which will offer pre-owned smartphones for value and environmentally conscious consumers.
The pre-owned and refurbed device program offers both various and limited devices, mainly Apple’s iPhone but a few Samsung Galaxy devices at reasonable prices and is being marketed via new TV ad running across the major TV networks, YouTube and social media apps as an eco-friendly alternative to purchasing a brand-new device.
Belong head of product and marketing, Aaliah Eggins-Bryson has stated at the launch of Belong’s Second Life services that:
“too many Australians believe mobile phones have no material impact on the environment than other things in their lives but in fact, every year, the world throws away around 44.7 million tonnes of tech. This is why we’ve launched Second Life Phones; because the most sustainable phone is the one that already exists.”
