Vodafone: new half-sized SIM cards to cut plastic use

(CercleFinance.com) - Vodafone is replacing its standard credit card-sized SIM holders with a new half-sized format that reduces the amount of plastic used by 50%, as part of a move to minimise the use of non-essential plastics.

Also, as from Christmas 2019, Vodafone stores will offer customers a range of eco-friendly accessories, including 100% biodegradable or recyclable phone cases made from reused ocean plastic.

In addition, the more ethical and sustainable Fairphone 3 smartphone will be available in five Vodafone markets - Germany, Italy, UK, Spain, and Ireland.

Vodafone previously said it planned to purchase all its electricity from renewable sources by 2025. The mobile phone giant has also committed to reuse, resell or recycle 100% of its network waste.
