Six Revolutionary Green Phones That Can Save the World

When we think of style, functionality, ease of use, affordability, we always tend to look at them as something outside of being environment friendly. But did you know that there are many great phones out there that prides itself of being modern, stylish, user friendly, affordable, and most of all eco-friendly?

You don't need to get your hands on those high end mobile phones that's actually causing more e-waste problems. And yes, you don't really need to invest on the latest gadgets that will just be outdated in a year or two. And if you are still thinking that the world is still normal, think about El Nino and El Nina and how those e-waste and pollutants have done to the environment.

Let me share with you, the Six Revolutionary Green Phones that can Save the World!

1. Grass phone

You may be thinking that grass is only good for your lawn or your horses and cows. But did you know that there actually exists a grass phone? The grass phone was an idea by Je-Hyun Kim's Natural Year Phone concept that carefully considers the life cycle of cellular phones. If you are used to 2year contracts with your carriers, the grass phone automatically biodegrades as it reaches the end of its functional life. Based on its design architecture, once the grassy casing has dissolved, you can gather the screen and soft keys, recycle them and integrate into a new phone.

2. Green Phone Made From Corn by Samsung

If the grass phone didn't impress you that much, this next item on our list would give you another green option. This green phone made from corn based bio plastics named Samsung Reclaim is an 80% recyclable bio-plastic based cell phone. It's certainly not your ordinary phone, Reclaim is equipped with a QWERTY keyboard, 3G network, GPS and one-click access to social-networking sites like Facebook, Twitter, MySpace and YouTube. Samsung also exerted an extra effort to eliminate the paper manual while its recyclable packaging is printed with soy-based ink. And the next good thing, when you purchase a Samsung Reclaim, $2 would go to the Nature Conservancy's Adopt an Acre program.

3. 84% Recyclable phone Samsung Restore

Another green phone from Samsung is Samsung Restore. An 84% recyclable phone with an outer casing that contains 27% post-consumer recycled plastic! But that's not all, Samsung also gave it a 100% recyclable packaging (including a cardboard box made out of 70% post consumer materials and printed with soy ink), an Energy Star Version 2.0 qualified energy efficient charger, an online user manual (replacing the paper version), and strict RoHS compliance.

4. First Eco Friendly Android Smartphone - Samsung Replenish

Samsung has made an aggressive move to bring green technology into the mainstream market. This is evidenced by its introduction of another green phone, Samsung Replenish. Touted as the First Eco-Friendly Android Smartphone, Replenish is a mixture of recycled materials, solar charging and the Android 2.2 Froyo platform. Eighty two percent (82%) of this device can recycled and can extend its green capabilities with a solar door charger. It allows web browsing while the sun charges its batteries.

5. World's First Carbon Neutral Cellphone

Renew W233 Motorola's green phone is first certified Carbonfree cell phone on the market and features a 100% recyclable housing made from recycled water bottles. Motorola has partnered with Carbonfund.org and invests in renewable energy sources and reforestation to offsets the energy to manufacture, distribute, and operate the phone. Motorola has also placed prepaid envelope in the box for easy access to recycling. Soy based inks and post consumer materials were used for the manual.

6. Solar Powered Android Phone by Umeox

The 2011 Mobile World Congress held last February introduced a solar powered Android phone by Umeox. Embellished with solar panels on its back, the Apollo Android phone is aspiring to be the first to mass market this solar powered device worldwide. Complete with basic and advance features, the sun cell has a 3.2 320480 display, 1GB of storage, a microSD expansion slot, FM radio, Bluetooth 2.1 with A2DP, 3 megapixel rear camera and a 3.5mm audio jack. The only major issue, charge time will take 17 hours in the sun to get this on full power.
