Eco-phones thanks to plastics

A new range of environmentally friendly mobile phones made from recycled water bottles and CD casings have recently been unveiled.

These handsets are made from hard plastic, consisting of up to 75% recycled materials while some plastic components are 100% recycled. The types of plastics used in the phones and the plastics suppliers have not been announced at this stage.

These eco handsets are claimed to have a 15% lower carbon footprint than other models currently on the market. As well as recycled plastics, the handsets offer digital user manuals and significantly less packaging, saving over half a kilo of paper per unit. Technical developments have incorporated a light sensor that adjusts energy usage and an energy-saving charger.
