Green Cellphones..And I'm Not Talking About The Color.

I was thumbing through my August issue of Marie Claire and a small article caught my eye. "The Greenest Cellphones on Earth".

Am I the ONLY one unaware that their were green cellphones?? I was completely amazed and thought I'd share with you their recommendations for all you eco-friendly, tech savvy ladies.

Samsung Reclaim
$79.99-Sprint
It's casing is made from a corn based bio-plastic which is 100 percent bio-degrable. Plus $2 from every purchase goes to The Nature Conservancy.

Nokia E72
$339-Amazon
The sleek, Blackberry-esque smartphone is 80 percent recyclable and free of typical cell-phone toxins like PVC's and chlorinated compounds.

Motorola Renew
$19.99-T-mobile
The first mobile device made of recycled water bottles also comes with a postage-paid envelope so you can recycle your old phone, no problem.


So what do you think? Will you be trading in your Blackberry's and iPhones for a Greener phone? Share your thought with me!

  1. I had no idea there were "green" phones. I'm really partial to my iPhone... if they made a "green" phone out there like that... I'd trade it in.

    I'm following you on GFC, coming over from Mom bloggers Club (MBC).

    Thanks

  4. I too had no idea there was such a thing as "green phones". I'm in need of a new phone soon and I'm pretty basic when it comes to my cell phone. I'll probably check these out when I make it down to the store.

  6. I love those phones! I want one! Most of them are pretty pricey unfortunately – good for the planet, but not for your wallet :(.

    Olivia (www.writeaboutbirth.com) - I found you through MBC! Love the blog!
