MOTO w233 Renew is the world’s first mobile phone made using plastics comprised of recycled water bottles. Called the phone for “eco- conscious consumers committed to going green,” the white and green bar phone is a Carbonfree® – carbon neutral product and is uniquely designed to reduce the environmental impact of the phone by using sustainable materials in its design and recyclable packaging. The Renew allows users to make a positive impact on the environment by reducing their carbon footprint, without compromising the quality or reliability of their phone. The phone is made using plastics comprised of recycled water bottles and the plastic phone housing is 100 percent recyclable. Since the phone has nine hours of talk time, users can talk more, charge less and reduce energy usage. Customers are also encouraged to recycle their previous mobile phone with an included in-box postage-paid recycling envelope.
