The Green Friendly motif in business is taking hold, never more than in Canada. Motorola has announced a mobile phone constructed of at least one quarter post-consumer plastics. The Fido contract customer has a welcome green-friendly token in its new “Renew” model cellphone. The housing is made from post-consumer recycled plastic. But the product is recyclable going out of its use life too, as the recycling packaging for mail back ensures. The entire product lifetime is spared the miserable garbage pile end. Water bottles have been recycled to make the Renew phone.
Certified CarbonFree, the Renew mobile phone earns carbon credit and sustainability credibility. The smart design reduces material inside the design, and service and product capability suffer no losses in performance. With carrier provided efficient talk time, mobile Internet access, and reduced landfill endpoint bulk, the Renew makes a mark in the sand for sustainability. The vegetable inks used for the instruction/startup materials, the donations to the Phones-For-Food program, and post-consumer vision, all these factors have resulted in Motorola and Fido earning a CarbonFree certification.
