Motorola Builds Phone from Recycled Water Bottles

Today, Motorola unveiled the world's first carbon-neutral phone made from recycled water bottles. Through an alliance with Carbon, Motorola will offset the carbon dioxide required to manufacture, distribute and operate the phone. The phone earned its CarbonFree Product Certification after an extensive product life-cycle assessment.

Even better, Motorola has reduced the phone's packaging by 22 percent, the materials inside are printed on 100 percent post-consumer recycled paper, and a postage-paid recycling envelope makes it easy for consumers to recycle their previous phones at no cost.

Nice idea, but I promote the conservative measure of keeping your old phone until it wears out. Hopefully a carbon neutral option will still be around in a few years time.
