As the world continues to grow more technology oriented it will be helpful to have some set standards in place. Something that we can use to compare gadgets in a way that makes sense to the non-tech-savvy.
For now, let's focus on which phones and phone accessories are making a commotion in the sustainable world today.
|Palm Pre Plus... |
The least eco-friendly phone
|Sony Ericsson Elm Phone|
One of the top eco-friendly phones
But don't lose hope! There are some phones that have been designed specifically to be greener, even literally. The Samsung E200Eco, is not only a green color, but is made with Bioplastics and marketed on a greener platform. Even more successful is the Sony Ericsson Elm, which seems to have climbed pretty high on the charts of most eco-friendly phones. (And it still includes all those nifty step-counting features that I loved when I had a Sony Ericsson). I found a couple of contradictory lists, but while the orders may be slightly different they all included the same top 5 eco-friendly phones.

supply chains and manufacturing
Of course these aren't the only phones paving the way to a more eco-friendly connectivity. But for now, if you're looking to find a phone that is environmentally conscious, hopefully you aren't opposed to all of your options being green.
