At Verizon Wireless, we’re committed to responsible business practices including identifying key environmental information for our devices.
Our ECO Specs Label allows you to shop with the environment in mind. You’ll spot key environmental information at a glance - from recycled material content to energy efficiency of the devices. Our label is not a rating system. It is an overview of the ingredients that define how the devices we sell measure up to our 5 key factors.
Our ECO Specs label will initially be available on a selection of cell phones. All cell phones, tablets, and accessories will have an ECO Specs label at a later date.
There are 5 Key Factors that determine a device’s eco-conscious design:
In addition to the 5 Key Factors on the label, we have partnered with Forum for the Future, to have all of our manufacturers complete a 94-question assessment to ensure that the devices we sell meet our environmental standards.
We live in the communities we serve, and we’re committed to do our part for a more sustainable environment—our device recycling and paperless programs are two additional examples of our commitment.
Recycle. Repurpose. Reward. Did you know that in the U.S., more than 130 million wireless devices are retired each year, but only 1 in 10 is recycled? We’re working to change that with our device recycling program. Learn just how rewarding recycling your device can be with the Verizon Device Recycling Program.
Go Paperless. Help save a tree. If you have not already, please choose to have your monthly statement e-mailed to you. Paperless statements help preserve our trees.
