Reuse is a growing consumer trend, according to a recent GreenCells survey, with 85 percent of respondents sometimes or always considering the environmental impact of their purchasing decisions.

The survey found that today’s consumers are increasingly turning to reuse in order to waste less, save more, and be good to the environment. Of the respondents committed to green purchasing, 22 percent cited the environmental impact of their decisions as “highly important.”

Many consumers are making ecofriendly efforts part of their day-to-day routines, according to the survey. Items purchased used by respondents include cell phones, computers, sports equipment, clothing, and books.

By providing consumers the opportunity to both buy and sell used cell phones, GreenCells’ reuse and recycling efforts have diverted approximately 200,000+ mobile devices from landfills.

GreenCells brings two key attributes to the reuse trend: trust, via the company’s exceptional warranty (with no monthly fees and no deductible) and value, with savings of 50 to 80% over a new cell phone. “GreenCells customers trust in our products, service, and guarantees,” says GreenCells Copresident Moore says. “Our 360° free shipping, free one-year warranty, and trade-in/trade-up offerings encourage confidence in reuse.”

GreenCells Trade-In/Trade-Up program completes the recycling cycle by allowing customers to get those just-in-case phones out of a drawer and back in circulation. If they have value, GreenCells even pays for them or provides a health discount on a new phone. In fact, many customers use this program to experiment with new phones, trading theirs in every few months for a newer model. With the already discounted used price plus the trade-in value GreenCells pays, it is a great way to stay on the cutting edge without digging deep in your pockets. And as always, shipping is free for all trade-ins by downloading our free label. Just another way GreenCells is working to make reuse mainstream.

As today’s consumers increasingly choose more socially responsible products, GreenCells meets the demand with a green marketplace featuring quality reused products, unmatched value, and a commitment to stellar service. “With GreenCells, green purchasing is not just a preferred choice, it’s the best choice,” Moore says.

Reuse and recycling continue to garner national focus through events like the U.S Environmental Protection Agency’s second annual National Cell Phone Recycling Week, April 5–11. Today’s consumer is more likely to recognize that reuse is both socially responsible and price conscious, Moore says. “Reuse is one of surest ways a consumer can be ‘green,’ and it comes at a value,” he says. “Our customers know that exceptional products don’t have to come at twice the cost. We hear it all the time: “I bought used, and I liked it.”
