“Why You Should Care About The Fairphone”

Part of the reason we as consumers so quickly cycle through our devices is twofold: lack of choice (or inability) around repairing them and exorbitant and often arbitrarily priced repair costs. Think of it this way: If you break your phone—hell, if you break just the screen—and the cost of repairing it is only slightly less than buying a brand new one, you’d buy the spanking new one, right? Probably so! But if you could buy the original equipment manufacturer parts for pennies on the dollar and either do the repair yourself or get it on the cheap, wouldn’t doing the cheap repair on an otherwise totally functional—or even relatively new—device be worth it?”
