Description: Reducing e-waste and raising awareness isn't just about what we do with our electronics when we are done with them. Back Market's mission is to restore trust and desire for refurbished electronic devices by working with over 1,000 professional refurbishers to give electronics a second life. For International E-Waste Day 2020 Back Market will use its website and social media to educate consumers on how to find safe, reliable refurbished electronics and extend the life of their devices. Purchasing a refurbished electronic device allows us to make the most out of the resources we have already used for its initial production, while also reducing the overall impact of e-waste on the planet by keeping it from the landfill for as long as possible.
