Choosing a Greener 3PL is the First Step
You Have Greener Options Than Ever Before
Partnering with Global Response 3PL means you have access to our full service reverse logistics teams, too. This is great for your attempts at being greener, since we have plenty of options for that iPad.
These might include:
Refurbishing it and reselling it. People love a bargain and will happily snap up electronics that are reasonably new and have been properly refurbished. We’ll send your product out to experts who do nothing but fix electronics all day and it’ll come back as good as new, ready for a second try.
Reselling it to the secondary market. If refurbishing is too costly, another option is to sell that DOA tablet to the secondary market. People will buy almost anything, often things you’d never imagine, for enough to make it worth the effort. Once purchased, that iPad might be fixed or it might be sold for scrap, but it will likely continue to circulate in some form.
Recycling it. When refurnishing isn’t an option and reselling holds no interest, many consumer electronics can be recycled. Depending on the exact type of machine it is, it may contain some fairly valuable metals and components that have a real market value. Even though the item itself is gone, the components remain in circulation, continuing to live on in the green supply chain.
