Extending the life of our products—and our planet.

We’re always looking for opportunities to extend the life of the devices and accessories that keep us all connected by embedding sustainability at every stage of the product lifecycle. From design and packaging to distribution and end-of-life, we look for ways to reduce waste and improve the longevity of our products and materials.

  • Design and Manufacturing

    Infusing sustainability principles in product design can lengthen the life of a product and reduce waste.

  • Packaging

    We work to proactively reduce waste and improve recyclability through the packaging process.

  • Distribution

    We partner with vendors across our supply chain to reduce the carbon footprint associated with product distribution.


  • End-of-life

    Recycling and reusing electronic devices and accessories helps preserve resource-intensive materials and precious metals.
