Plastic Free July: Reducing Our Plastic Consumption

We’re committed to reducing our plastic consumption.

It’s Plastic Free July 2022 and we wanted to share some of the ways we’re helping reduce our plastic consumption, as well as some ways you can help support the movement! At Doji we want to help protect our environment as much as we can, and that includes reducing the amount of plastic we’re using and being conscious of how we do things. We want to challenge our community to make changes that help combat the climate crisis and create a healthier planet for its inhabitants.

What Doji's already doing to help cut down on plastic:

  • We use recycled packaging wherever possible to send out your devices. You’re buying a used phone, in used packaging - that’s double the impact and a big saving on your next device!
  • Royal Mail is our delivery partner of choice: they currently have the largest fleet of electrical delivery vehicles in the UK and are committed to becoming Net Zero by 2040.
  • Our staff are encouraged to use reusable bottles and coffee cups for their drinks throughout the day!
  • We reduce the need for new products to be created, did you know that a mobile phone is 40% plastic? By buying or selling on Doji, you’re reducing the need for more plastic to be used and helping extend the life of an electronic device!

So, how can you help?

  1. If you haven't already, seriously consider buying refurbished tech. A lot of plastic goes into your phones and tablets!
  2. Start buying in bulk to reduce the amount of plastic packaging required, and save yourself some cash.
  3. Use reusable containers for your food and drinks, you can even take them into grocery stores to reduce the packaging you use.
  4. Think about your personal healthcare routines. Earbuds, disposable wipes, and sanitary products all contain more plastic than you might think!
  5. Challenge yourself, your family, your employer, and colleagues to take up the challenge and go plastic free.
  6. Speak up if you see something you're not happy with! We’re all responsible for holding each other to account, and that includes the companies and brands we use.
