Re: Product Stewardship

There’s nothing better than getting a slick new phone. But the last time you upgraded, how much thought did you give to the valuable materials in your old phone?

Re. Product stewardship

Phones are full of valuable resources that can be recycled and given a second life. But, as Warren Overton, CEO of the Australia and New Zealand Recycling Program says, people tend to hoard them and stick them in a drawer.

Currie’s Mark Paterson spoke with Warren recently to kick off our new podcast, Re. Re is about reframing, rethinking and realigning conversations around the environment, sustainability and food production.

We’re excited to share the first episode, which is all about product stewardship – or, in very simple terms, what happens to your old mobile phone or computer when you upgrade.
