Three.ae is a blog-style-eCommerce website that began as a result of receiving a number of common IT related questions and support queries from its parent company Discount.ae. After dealing with many IT related products and customers, Discount.ae was receiving many How-to and DIY questioners in daily bases. At the same time, we saw there was a huge waste on electronic goods and chain-effect to our environment. For an example, when you buy a new iPhone 5S it will have a carbon footprint of 70kg which 81% will be emitted during production.
Our mission is to reduce electronic waste by teaching people how to repair their own electronics by offering tools, parts, and information at low cost. Inspired by Ikea’s DIY concept and the eHow video series we aim to provide repair guides for all products. We think learning to fix your own stuff is how we all are impacting the environment with our technological advances and its fun to play around.
