Hey Community Members -

With multiple options available to you, this article talks about how using Repair as a service option can not only help prolong your tech... but also our planet!


You’ve got a broken phone screen. We’ve all been there, and it never happens at a convenient moment. Suddenly, you’re faced with a choice. Do I recycle this phone, or do I get it repaired?

Like so many of you, Samsung cares deeply about the planet and is constantly working to make a difference and create a more sustainable future. Our approach to the circular economy includes these key sustainability goals:

• Incorporating recycled material in all new mobile products by 2025
• Eliminating all plastics in mobile packaging by 2025
• Achieving zero waste to landfill by 2025

A young man holding his Galaxy S22 gets assistance from a Samsung Care representative.

While we’re all working to do our part to create a better future, repairing devices has proven to have a significant impact on the environment. According to the Waste Reduction Model from the Environmental Protection Agency, “Recycling is important to limiting waste and supporting a circular economy, but repair can be up to 28 times more beneficial¹ in terms of reducing lifecycle greenhouse gas emissions for mobile products, compared to recycling alone.” So by practicing both recycling and repair, together we can make a meaningful difference. 

We can all make everyday repair choices with meaningful impact. By taking advantage of accessible repair options, we can create a better future for everyone.
