Closing the Loop (CTL) provides services called waste compensation in which the customers’ new devices will be waste neutral. As compensation for the new device you buy, it is balanced out by collecting end-of-life electronics in African and Asian countries. Thus, the customers will help to  create a zero-waste environment by collecting e-waste from countries that lack e-waste recycling infrastructure and CTL ships them where they can be responsibly recycled. 

The Good Phone Foundation is a non-profit organization (NGO) managed through an open governance process.The foundation activities are structured in several tracks including development of the core technology, management of the governance model, and promotion of the foundation’s pillars: ethical technology; top-level security; respect for privacy; digital well-being. The Good Phone Foundation aims to help mobile phone users establish and ensure their digital sovereignty. They build the Lunar OMP as an open-source mobile OS based on the Android Open Source Project. It includes every component a mobile device requires to operate on its own without relying on 3rd party infrastructure or technology: dedicated hardware, android based de-googled OS and App suite.

The Good Phone Foundations believes that everyone deserves respect and privacy on their mobile devices and communication and wants to put an end to Big Tech that monetizes mobile phone users data.
