This climate+ package assumes the average person has 14 phones over their lifetime, a fun mixture of iPhone X, iPhone 8, iPhone 7, iPhone 6, iPhone 5s.
Canadian’s live an average of 80 years but we can assume most people do not have a cellular device until the age of 10. So let’s say most people have a phone for 70 years of their life
If a cellphone on average lasts 4.25 years, and we divide this number by 70, the average person would have 16.5 phones.
70 years / 4.25 year = 16.47 phones = about let’s assume 17 phones just in case.
Let’s say someone has had one iPhone 5S, four iPhone 6’s, two iPhone 7’s, three iPhone 8’s and seven iPhone X’s over their life.
An iPhone X has lifetime emissions of 79kg of CO2, an iPhone 8 has emits 57kg of CO2, an iPhone 7 emits 56 kg of CO2, an iPhone 6 emits 95 kg of CO2 and an iPhone 5s emits 65 kg of CO2.
- iPhone X = 79 kg of CO2
- iPhone 8 = 57kg of CO2
- iPhone 7 = 56 kg of CO2
- iPhone 6 = 95 kg of CO2
- iPhone 5s = 65 kg of CO2
- 79kg CO2 x 7 = 553 kg CO2
- 57kg CO2 x 3 = 171 kg CO2
- 56kg CO2 x 2 = 112 kg CO2
- 95kg CO2 x 4 = 380 kg CO2
- 65kg CO2 x 1 = 65 kg CO2
553kg + 171 kg + 112kg + 380 kg + 65 kg = 1,281kg CO2
In order to change kilograms into metric tons, we use the conversion factor of 0.001 tons for every kilogram.
1,281 kg x 0.001 = 1.281 MT CO2
