The total impact of one phone
A single mobile phone, weighing around 160 grams, requires about 35,000 grams of the planet to be mined, to obtain the raw materials. In processing those materials and manufacturing the phone, around 85,000 grams of toxic waste is create. So, one phone creates toxic waste equivalent to nearly 40 litres of liquid and over 20 house bricks. The burden the plant bears for just one phone.
