Be aware: we, and Fairphone, believe the environment is important. That’s why the Fairphone 2 is not shipped with a charger. It uses a Micro USB, which is compatible with chargers most people have around their house.

The Fairphone Story

The Fairphone 2 is the world’s first ethical, modular phone.

Easy to Fix

That means that when accidents happen, you don’t need to buy a new phone. You just buy a new screen, new battery or new speaker.

No need to book an appointment in a shop, pay over the odds or handover your phone for weeks on end. You can just repair it yourself.

Fairphone are a social enterprise founded in 2013 with the ambition to change the industry from the inside out.

  • They’ve looked through the whole development and production process of making a smartphone and found ways to make changes that have a positive social and environmental impact.
  • They’ve created a phone with a long lasting design and modular build to avoid the ongoing replacement cycle most manufacturers go through.
  • They're constantly working with selected manufacturers and suppliers to improve working environment and conditions.
  • They’ve set up traceable supply chain to source conflict free tin, tantalum and tungsten.
  • They’re reducing wastage through reusing and recycling their phones as much as possible.

All these small steps aim to make a difference by creating great technology for the greater good.
