OKdo Renew Offers Customers the Opportunity to Return Selected Raspberry Pi Boards for a Reward

OKdo launches the first official Raspberry Pi recycling initiative in partnership with Raspberry Pi and Sony Technology Centre

OKdo announced OKdo Renew, the first official scheme to renew pre-loved Raspberry Pi boards in the UK, with plans for it to become a global offering later in 2021.

OKdo Renew offers the Raspberry Pi community the facility to return pre-loved Raspberry Pi3b, Pi3b+ and Pi4 boards for free. In return, they will receive a £10 voucher toward their next online OKdo purchase.

Richard Curtin, OKdo’s SVP of Technology said, “With the global population predicted to approach 9 billion people by 2030, we are using more resources than the planet can provide. Our future depends on reusing what we have in a sustainable way.”

Returned boards are sent directly to the Sony Technology Centre where they were originally manufactured. They are fully tested, reconditioned and renewed using recycled packaging ready for resale across the OKdo digital platforms, at a lower price than new boards. As an added incentive, Okdo will offer a 12-month warranty on all resold boards and make a donation to the Raspberry Pi foundation for each board sold.
