Posted by Rebekah Griffiths on Aug 31, 2016 10:00:00 AM

The message is simple and it comes down to the basics of “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle”. The EPA (Environment Protection Agency) has been trying to educate us on this for years.

For businesses that have a mobile device trade-in program, incentivizing customers starts with the fact that your customer engagement should not simply end with the sale of a device or a customer’s sign up for a device financing plan.
