It’s been a year since a small package arrived at my doorstep. In it was my “new” phone, a Huawei P30 Pro. From the outside the phone was hardly to distinguish from a regular phone but from the inside it was different. It was refurbished. The package I received came from a sustainable brand based in Vienna called refurbed™. Refurbed™ offers refurbished electronical products. Read on to learn more about the whole process and idea behind that!

On the Search for Alternatives
Last year I fell victim to an online scam on eBay and lost a great deal of money. Something I thought would never happen to me because of my experience with second-hand online platforms. There was no chance to get my money back, to track down the scammer or to make use of any form of protection. Because there was none. After this incident I knew I had to look for alternatives and that’s when I first discovered refurbed™.
50 Billion Tons!
Buying a brand-new smartphone was still out of the question. Our fast-moving consumer society demands 1.4 billion smartphones each year while a total of around 50 billion tons of electronical waste is generated yearly. Unbelievable numbers that emphasize the importance of looking for alternatives!
Refurbed™ purchases used electronical devices such as smartphones, laptops or cameras, that would (most likely) end up as electronical waste. In a sophisticated 40-steps process these devices are refurbished and brought back to the market. My “new” Huawei P30 Pro arrived without a scratch and is still perfectly functioning after a year of daily usage! Even the batteries are as good as in the beginning and I am sure it will make me happy for a very long time.
Better Than New
Is the promising and very accurate slogan of refurbed™. Alongside avoiding electronic waste purchasing your electronical products from refurbed™ comes with many other advantages. Through buying refurbed™ you end up with a refurbished product that is 40% cheaper and 100% more eco-friendly than its brand-new counterpart while looking and functioning just as new. On top of that you will have a 30 days trial, a 12 months warranty and a professional service assisting you with any occurring problem! This makes it a better option than second-hand online platforms. Last but not least, a tree is planted for each purchase!
I can only urge you to check their website when being in need of a new electronical device. Unfortunately, I had to learn the hard way that, even with the greatest caution and carefulness, you can fall victim to an online scam. There are even cases where no party is to blame and yet there is no one to refund your loss or financial damage. Buying used products is not only smart, it is highly necessary in today’s world. Just don’t make the same mistake I did and better #berefurbed!
