Go Go Green

"Nature provides a free lunch, but only if we control our appetites."
- William Ruckelshaus.


Right now, "going green" is a huge trend as well as a prodigious environmental concern.

Recently Motorola released a "green" phone exclusive to T-Mobile customers called the "Motorola Renew." It's made from plastics comprised of recycled water bottles, which means 20% less energy is needed to create the phone compared to standard plastic processes. Designed for eco-conscious users with calls as their #1 priority, providing 9 hours of talk time which means less charging and reduces energy usage. Also, CrystalTalk technology amplifies the conversation and helps reduce background noise.

All materials inside are printed on 100% post-consumer recycled paper. In addition, a postage-paid recycling envelope in the box makes it easy to return a previous mobile phone for recycling at no cost.

Through its alliance with Carbon Fund, Motorola offsets the carbon dioxide required to manufacture, distribute and operate the phone during its lifetime through investments in renewable energy sources and reforestation.

So I suppose I should admit I'm promoting this product because I believe in it and I have purchased it after much research. It isn't fancy, but it's simple and it delivers. I don't like anything/anyone ostentatious! I don't want to take photos/videos with my cell phone [[I have a camera for that]] or access the web [[I have a computer for that]] or whatever else new technology says that technology should be. I just need a cell phone that's affordable and keeps up with how much I talk+text.

{Simplify your life!}
