Product Sustainability

Product sustainability means rethinking the way we engineer, package and recycle our devices. It also means giving our customers important information about the environmental aspects of our devices and accessories.

Device recycling and phone donations

Verizon’s device recycling programs give our customers an opportunity to be environmentally conscious while giving back to the community.

Packaging and paper policies

We’ve modified the packaging associated with cellphone accessories, such as chargers, batteries and earphones. All Verizon-branded accessory packaging uses materials sourced from certified sustainably managed forests and land, or is made with a minimum of 30 percent recycled content.
