UK tech retailer Currys is addressing e-waste with refurbished tech

Currys, one of the UK’s leading technology retailer, announced that it is trialling sales of refurbished technology on its website. The initiative arises amid the growing environmental awareness of the British public and the challenges posed by the exponential increase in the cost of living.

Second-hand tech sales have been in high demand, particularly refurbished laptops, with 80% of advertised products selling within the first week of sales. In addition to providing savings for customers, purchasing refurbished tech prevents good products from ending in landfills.
