About circularity and sustainability: an interview with QC Centre and 4Phones
This month, the newest edition of the Dutch magazine “Circulaire It” was released, in which an interesting interview with Rob Wierenga of QC Centre Europe and the Managing Director of 4Phones, Jurrie Christians, can be found. In this interview, Jurrie mentions the importance of the repair industry in reducing technological waste, while explaining that 4Phones is part of a circular model where every piece sold has a complete life cycle. This means that parts don’t end up in the trash can, but sometimes are re-purchased from customers for recycling purposes with the 4Phones Buyback program.
Rob Wierenga from QC Centre Europe talks about QC's vital role in this business model: the impact of transportation can be one of the biggest polluters. Our solution to this is that we started joining orders from different companies in the same shipment, which doesn't only save money but also helps the planet in the long run.
We strongly believe that these small efforts are the ones that will eventually generate a real change in the future. Little by little, and with everyone contributing, we can really reduce the ecological footprint our day-to-day activities are leaving.
