How is tradeing in my laptop contributing to a sustainable future?

By trading-in and recycling your devices, you are supporting the transition to a more circular economy. In a circular economy, products are made, used, then returned and reused, instead of being discarded and consigned to landfill. This is much better for our environment, creating less waste. Your trade-in devices could be refurbished and reused, or its parts could be used to repair devices that are still in use. Recycled materials could even be used to build a whole new machine.

Using recycled materials is also much more energy efficient, helping to reduce our carbon footprint.

What is carbon offsetting?

A carbon offset is a way to compensate for your emissions by funding an equivalent carbon dioxide saving elsewhere. Our everyday actions, at home and at work, consume energy and produce carbon emissions. Carbon offsetting is used to balance out these emissions by helping to pay for emission savings in other parts of the world. For each successful claim that we receive, we will help to offset carbon emissions by planting one tree in the UK.

How will trading in my laptop help offest my carbon footprint?

In partnership with, we will plant a tree for each trade-in device we receive and offset at least one tonne of CO2 emissions in the Amazon Rainforest. Trees are vital for our planet. They provide soil stabilization, a home to wildlife, not to mention the oxygen we breathe. They also store carbon, making them essential in the campaign against climate change.

By taking part in this promotion, you are actively helping in the fightback against deforestation.

But that’s not all we’re doing to protect our trees. Our technology is at the forefront of efforts to combat deforestation. Find out more.

What happens to the data on my Trade-in device?

We know that data protection is important to our customers. The secure and GDPR compliant disposal of your unwanted devices is fundamental to our trade-in programme. We use industry-leading software, Blancco, to wipe all trade-in units before recycling. We will also supply a certificate to prove that your data has been erased. Recycle with peace of mind, knowing your personal information will remain safe.

How do I request a copy of the Blancco Certificate?

Our Team will be happy to provide you with a copy of the Blancco certificate for your records. Please contact us via the form at the bottom of this page.
