Las Vegas (NV) – Motorola Inc will share with consumers a brand new, carbon-neutral cell phone made from recycled plastic water bottles during CES.
Deemed the Moto W233 Renew, Motorola is calling the phone the “world’s first carbon neutral mobile phone” because it is composed of recycled plastics. Due to this, the company claims that production of the phone requires 20% less energy than the standard plastic process.
The phone battery allows for up to nine hours of talk time, which means that users will be able to talk more, and have to charge their phones less thus conserving energy.
The device is trying to stay true to the concept of sustainability. The Renew will be packaged in a box that is much smaller than your typical cell phone box and comes with brochures that are printed utilizing vegetable-based inks on 100% post-consumer recycled paper.
Motorola has not yet released the price, or date the product will be available.
