At last, as well as being designed to survive for as long as possible, Fairphone has attempted to produce the Fairphone 5 in an ethical way. It lists over a dozen materials that it’s attempted to sustainably source and says that 70 percent of these materials are either recycled or ethically mined.

A big step towards Environment

So there’s recycled copper, magnesium, aluminum, tin, zinc, nickel, indium and plastics, and Fairphone has worked with the Alliance for Responsible Mining, the Fair Cobalt Alliance, and the Initiative for Responsible Mining Assurance in an attempt to improve the mining of other materials like tungsten and lithium.  A living wage bonus is paid to the 2,000 people who assemble the phone and components like its PCB, vibration motor and battery.
