Sustainable & Ethical Phones
Smartphones are powered by a huge array of rare metals and minerals. Your guide to ethical phones
Rare earths and minerals are exactly that, rare. They’re hard to come by, often leading to exploitation of workers and the environment. Unfortunately smartphones need these materials to operate. We look at the most sustainable and ethical phones.
Cobalt, lithium and boron are things you probably don’t think much about. You’ve probably heard of ‘blood diamonds’ but have you heard of ‘conflict minerals’?
You’d be surprised how many appliances and tools contain rare earth materials that poison rivers and ruin landscapes – not to mention the forced labor that goes with it. We investigate just how green these gadgets are.
And it’s no longer just about not doing any harm! It’s also about providing a positive contribution, and actually leaving things better than you found it. That’s what ethical, social and sustainable business is about.
We’re making sure that we’re not just throwing words like ‘eco’ and ‘green’ around lightly. The household products we’ll be featuring on this website are ones that have been thoroughly investigated. They’re products that we look at with a somewhat critical lens to make sure they’re making a net positive contribution to people and planet.
It’s still early days for us (we only set up late 2020) but you can find plenty more about us on our Instagram page.

By utilising some of the best technologies to monitor and track climate action, we can better tackle the climate crisis.
Technology is simply a tool, and tools help solve problems. Provided we don’t continue producing ‘throwaway’ items, we believe technology can be used ethically.
Ethical tech means producing quality items that last a long time. It means being carbon positive, not just carbon neutral. It means making sure the supply chain is slavery free.
