Check out this infographic on The Environmental Impact of Mobile Phones.


Examples of the impact mobiles are having on the world:

  • 4.1 billion phones in the world
  • In one year the average phone uses enough energy to emit 112 kilograms of CO2
  • 4 per second end up in landfills
  • 4.7 tonnes of gold and 49 tonnes of silver thrown away each year

It gives an idea of how easy it would be to make a positive impact by changing how we use our mobile phones.
