E-waste is the world’s fastest-growing waste stream, and much of it is handled unsafely, causing pollution, human health hazards, and the loss of valuable resources.
People are increasingly invested in the right to repair the electronics they own. Repair cafes and other peer-to-peer gatherings build communities around prolonging the life of products.
Brands like Nokia, Fairphone and Framework are responding by turning repairability into a desirable feature that reduces environmental harm and saves people money.
Nokia just announced the arrival of a new smartphone, Nokia G22. It’s the first phone purposefully designed with repairability at its core, enabling users to easily access repair guides, tools and affordable replacements for damaged or worn-out parts.
When a battery dies, a screen breaks or a charging port is bent out of shape, that’s where users can find guides and purchase tools and parts they need to fix their phone. Nokia specifically constructed the G22 to make it easy for anyone to repair.
