Mobile phone made of plastics

Korean electronics manufacturer Samsung has introduced Blue Earth, a mobile phone which will be produced using plastics re cycled from water bottles, helping to reduce fuel consumption and carbon emissions in the manufacturing process.

Blue Earth also is  the very first mobile phone equipped with a solar cell. The touch-screen design incorporates solar panels on the back of the phone to enable the phone to be charged on the move, as well as an energy-effi cient charger which requires a standby power lower than 0.03W. A full solar charge – 10 to 14 hours – will provide enough power for four hours of talk time.

Both the handset and charger will be free of toxic materials such as brominated fl ame retardants, beryllium and phthalate. In addition, the packaging for the phone is made from recycled paper and designed to be both small and light. The phone also includes a built-in pedometer which tells users how much CO2 they have saved by walking.
