Fairphone

What would happen if you made a phone that was 100% modular and 100% open-source? What if you built it with ethically sourced materials? What if you tried to build it with social values? Fairphone is a social enterprise that is building a movement for fairer electronics. By making a phone, we’re opening up the supply chain and creating new relationships between people and their products.

A phone to feel good about

We want you to understand where your products come from, so we’re tracing our materials to their source and making improvements in the supply chain along the way.

Every year, consumers throw away millions of mobile phones. This is because most phones aren’t built to last, paired with our desire to constantly upgrade our devices. Some of these discarded phones are properly recycled, but others end up in landfills or are recycled under dangerous working conditions. At the same time, new products are continuously manufactured to keep up with demand for the “latest thing.”

 
Impossible were instrumental in the success of the movement.
