Washington, Jan 8 (ANI): If recycled paper and plastic products were not enough, Motorola has now launched a cell phone made from recycled plastic water bottles.Called the MOTO W233 Renew, the mobile phone not only boasts plastic exterior made from recycled material, but also the device is the first "carbon neutral" phone, said the company.
"Through an alliance with Carbonfund.org, Motorola offsets the carbon dioxide required to manufacture, distribute and operate the phone through investments in renewable energy sources and reforestation," All Headlines News quoted Motorola as saying in a press release.
In fact, the box that contains the phone is also made from recycled material, according to the media release.
Another postage-paid box comes inside the package, which is also made from recycled paper, and can be used by customers to mail their old phones back to Motorola for recycling.
With nine hours of talk time, the phone includes other features like ChrystalTalk technology and messaging capabilities.
MOTO W233 Renew will hit the shelves during the first quarter of 2009 at T-Mobile stores.
Motorola unveiled the phone at the 2009 International CES in Las Vegas this week. (ANI)
