Goody Green: An Eco Cellphone
Great news for anyone who cares about the earth and talks on a cell phone… Motorola's MOTO W233 Renew, the world's first carbon neutral phone, is due out this Spring! And, while it may not have a 3 megapixel camera, it does have a long list of eco-friendly properties that make this phone totally worth the wait!
The phone is made from recycled water bottles and it's packaged in a smaller, lighter box, so it actually burns less carbon when being transported. Plus, all packaging and pamphlets are made from 100 percent post-consumer recycled paper and printed with vegetable-based inks. The phone's outer shell is 100 percent recyclable and a postage-paid envelope is included in the box so you can send in your previous cell phone to be recycled. And a longer battery life (up to nine hours of talk time) helps conserve energy since you don't need to charge it as much. Finally, Motorola has partnered with Carbonfund.org in order to offset all carbon emissions due to the manufacturing, distributing and operating the phone by investing in renewable energy sources and reforestation, which makes the Renew the first certified CarbonFree alternative to mobile phones!
