And every gadget has an environmental impact. Most of that impact comes from the raw materials that are extracted from the earth and the energy used to turn those materials into a device that you can use. There are also the impacts of shipping it to you, the effects of using it daily, and what happens to a device when it becomes e-waste.

Tech companies make so many claims about how environmentally friendly their devices are—throwing around terms like “ocean-bound plastics” or “carbon neutral”—that assessing those factors’ importance while also choosing the best device for your needs can feel overwhelming.

No matter how well you treat your phone or laptop, eventually you will need a new one.
