Renew, refurbished, reinvent. There are a lot of words starting with ‘re’ in the world of technology these days, and there’s a good reason for that.

 

Going green in the world of technology is crucial for several reasons. Firstly, the technology industry is one of the largest contributors to carbon emissions, due to the energy needed to power data centres and manufacture electronic devices. By adopting more sustainable practices in this industry, we can help to reduce our overall carbon footprint and mitigate the effects of climate change.

 

Changing times 

According to Deloitte, they conducted a survey and discovered that, among several other findings, that: “consumers are embracing 'circularity' with one in two (53%) claiming to have repaired an item instead of replacing it with new equivalent, 40% have also bought second-hand or refurbished goods and 38% paid extra for a more durable or longer lasting product.” They also “valued durability (52%) over recyclability (23%).”

Businesses and customers alike are becoming more ecologically conscious. 

 

More consumers and businesses than ever are becoming more aware of the changes that need to be made in the technology sector to make it more sustainable, and we are more than aware of this too. Let’s not beat around the bush: the technology sector is one of the biggest culprits of waste in the world. Waste that doesn’t necessarily have to be thrown away, either. Many consumers in the world of technology used to be conditioned to want what is “new” and exciting: think of the lines and lines of people outside an Apple store waiting for hours for an iPhone with a bit more memory and a slightly better camera. A lot of technology companies have ridden on this rhetoric for years, and now, finally, it’s catching up. I’m sure you’ve seen the ads that have started to appear on YouTube videos and on the TV about trading in your old technology or for your old phone to be recycled responsibly so you can have enough money for the next one in the series.

 

What does it mean to be refurbished?

There is a difference between just used products and refurbished ones. Used products are items that have been previously owned and used by someone else. They may have been returned to the manufacturer or seller, or they may have been bought and sold through a secondary market, such as a garage sale or online marketplace. Used products may have signs of wear and tear and may not be in the same condition as when they were originally sold.

 

Refurbished products, on the other hand, are used products that have been restored to a like-new condition as best as possible. This restoration process can include cleaning, repairing, and testing the product to ensure that it is in full working order. Refurbished products are often sold at a lower price than new products, but they have been restored to a condition that is similar to new. In summary, all refurbished products are used, but not all used products are refurbished.

 

DC Renew

 

DC Renew is designed to create a perfect compromise between the ethical dilemma of throwing away or recycling your perfectly working but not brand-new technology, whilst still keeping up with all your friends when gaming or streaming. We aim to give your old technology a 1-up, providing upgrades made from fully working refurbished parts that have been professionally cleaned and tested by us to work just as if they were brand new. Refurbished has been cleaned and reset back to its manufacturer default and acts as if it’s fresh out of the box, even if it doesn’t have the cling film to prove it. Also, it’s a damn lot cheaper than buying it new, and it works just the same, and even has a one year warranty! So even if it doesn’t work up to your satisfaction, it is still covered in case you change your mind.

 

We know how important it is to both consumers and companies to provide more environmentally friendly alternatives as well as top-of-the-range options for our customers. Above all, we want to provide our customers with the choice. Some reasons to choose refurbished can be:

 

  1. Cost savings: Implementing green technology can reduce energy costs and increase efficiency, resulting in significant cost savings for companies.
  2. Environmental benefits: green technology reduces the environmental impact of products and services, helping to preserve natural resources and reduce pollution.
  3. Environmental benefits: green technology reduces the environmental impact of products and services, helping to preserve natural resources and reduce pollution.
  4. Brand reputation: Companies that adopt green technology are often viewed more favourably by consumers, which can improve brand reputation and attract environmentally-conscious customers.
  5. Innovation: The development and implementation of green technology can lead to new and innovative products and services.
  6. Long-term sustainability: Implementing green technology can help ensure long-term sustainability for companies and for the planet.

 

But it's not just about going Green

 But let's not get too deep into the literal and metaphorical weeds. It's not all about being an earth mother, it's also important to be aware of another great benefit of using DC Renew.

 

It's cheaper.

 

Refurbished products are invariably cheaper than brand new products, even though refurbished products are, according to Wikipedia: 

 

The main difference between "refurbished" and "used" products is that refurbished products have been tested and verified to function properly, and are thus free of defects, while "used" products may or may not be defective.

So you're getting a product that is free of defects, and is a lot more affordable. And in this current economic climate, we need all the help we can get right now.

 

Going green in the world of technology is crucial for a number of reasons. Firstly, the technology industry is one of the largest contributors to carbon emissions, due to the energy needed to power data centres and manufacture electronic devices. By adopting more sustainable practices in this industry, we can help to reduce our overall carbon footprint and mitigate the effects of climate change.

 

Another method is through the proper disposal of old electronics. Electronic waste, or e-waste, is a growing problem as more and more devices become obsolete and are discarded. By properly disposing of old electronics, companies and individuals can help to reduce the amount of toxic materials that end up in landfills.
