Back Market: Hack Market

Back Market is a French startup that operates a marketplace of refurbished electronics devices in 16 countries. The company is valued at $5.7b . The purchase of a refurbished smartphone saves 91% of CO2 emissions, 68800 liters of water, 129 grams of precious metal... But as the latest IPCC report also points out, there is an urgent need to act because in the tech industry alone, more than 1.5 billion new devices are manufactured each year, a figure that the planet can no longer keep up with. On Earth Day, April 22, 2022, and to help people change their minds, Back Market and its Paris-based agency Marcel (part of Publicis Groupe) took our last chance to convince those who were about to buy a new device.
