A Phone Made of Recycled Water Bottles

The MOTO W233 Renew has a plastic phone housing that is made of recycled water bottles.  The Motorola phone can be purchased from T-Mobile USA for $9.99 with a 2 year contract.

All of the phone packaging is made from 100 percent post-consumer recycled paper.  The phone even comes with a prepaid shipping envelope so that your old device can be sent back for recycling.  In addition, T-Mobile, in a partnership with the Arbor Day Foundation, plants trees for customers who sign up for paperless billing.  More than 500,000 trees were planted in 2008 through this program. According to SlashPhone.com, “the Renew delivers a superior battery life experience with up to nine hours of talk time.”
