The first major mobile company to make a significant step towards an eco-friendly cell phone has released a model made from recycled water bottles. The Motorola W233 Renew is pledged to be the worlds first carbon neutral phone. In addition it has been confirmed that the company will also offset the carbon dioxide used in manufacturing, distribution and operation by investing in renewable energy sources and reforestation. They were also able to reduce the size of the box by 22% and use recycled paper for the manual and other printed materials.
