Is This the Most Sustainable Smartphone?

Fairphone’s sustainability and ethics, explored. Get access to exclusive ad-free OCC interviews with CuriosityStream AND Nebula for $14.79 per year (26% off!)

In this Our Changing Climate climate change video essay, I look at how the Fairphone is one of the most sustainable and ethical smartphones on the market today. From the Fairphone 2 to the Fairphone 3 and now with the newly upgraded Fairphone 3 plus, Fairphone has slowly worked to create the greenest, most sustainable smartphone that emphasizes modular design alongside an ethical supply chain and conflict-free minerals. The Fairphone 3 plus smartphone’s carbon footprint is half the carbon footprint of Apple’s iPhone 12 smartphone. One of the biggest sustainable design mechanics of the Fairphone 3 plus is its modular smartphone design. The Fairphone 3 plus’ modularity means that the battery can be replaced in seconds, while the Fairphone’s screen can be replaced in minutes. In short, the Fairphone 3 plus is one the most sustainable phones in the smartphone space today.
