OnePlus is currently one of the most successful smartphone manufacturers out there, and that’s pretty impressive for a company founded less than a decade ago. The Chinese brand now has a new idea for supporting the environment, and it will likely have a lot of success as well. What would you choose between upgrading your phone to another that’s significantly better or planting trees? If you choose the first variant, that may not be very wise. Planting trees represent a very important task in order to support nature, as plants are a great source of oxygen. While many believe that you can’t live without love, oxygen is even more important!
Therefore, why not choose both options? Why not upgrade your phone and also plant a tree? That’s somewhat what OnePlus proposes. The company seems very determined to start planting trees, and it can even get extra motivation from its customers. Seriously, there are probably few things in life more satisfying than to know that you’ve been a source of inspiration for one of the best smartphone companies in the world.
Trading your phone for a OnePlus device will help the Chinese company plant a new tree
According to Forbes, OnePlus will plant a new tree each time a person from Europe trades their smartphone for one from the Chinese company. This is obviously a win-win scenario, as you will not only get yourself a better phone but also help the environment along the way indirectly.
For the new initiative, OnePlus is teaming up with Ecologi, an environmental organization located in Bristol (England). Ecologi issued the following statement, as Forbes quotes:
“It’s great to see OnePlus taking important steps to reduce the environmental impact of its products through its trade-in scheme, alongside supporting reforestation projects. Given its global presence and huge customer base, we hope OnePlus can act as an example to other companies in the sector – inspiring them to join the collective fight against climate change.”
The best OnePlus phone is arguably the 10 Pro model that was released this year in January. It’s equipped with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor, an LTPO2 Fluid AMOLED display of 120Hz for the refresh rate, a 50MP ultrawide main camera, and the amazing specs could continue. You can purchase the OnePlus 10 Pro at about $569.
Apple was founded almost half a century ago, in 1976, by Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak, two guys who left college. Samsung, on the other hand, was founded 84 years ago. Huawei is also a pretty old company, as it was founded 35 years ago, in 1987. Those three tech giants are currently among the most successful smartphone manufacturers in the world. Now, you must take into account that OnePlus was founded in 2013, which makes it less than 10 years old.
