New Motorola Phone Hopes to Offset Carbon Footprint

The phone, named the Renew, is made of recycled water bottles and is 100 percent recyclable.


| January 2009 Web


Motorola debuted its Renew phone at the 2009 International Consumer Electronics Show this week. The company teamed up with Carbonfund.org to make the world’s first CarbonFree Certified phone. Motorola offsets the carbon dioxide required to manufacture and distribute the phone with investments through Carbonfund.org.

The packaging of the phone is also 22 percent smaller, and all paper in the box is printed on 100 percent post-consumer recycled paper. Inside the box, a postage-paid envelope is provided to return the old phone for recycling.

The phone will be available in the first quarter of 2009 through T-Mobile.
