Reducing Phone Footprints

Considering how many cell phones & accessories often end up in landfills, it's nice to see AT&T taking steps to cut its impact. Some of the features on its new Motorola P793 Back-Up Battery Charger:
  • 25 percent of the plastic in the external housing of the Motorola P793 Back-Up Battery Charger is made from recycled post-consumer water-cooler bottles.
  • The Back-up Battery Charger shuts itself off automatically once fully charged, reducing wasted energy.
  • First product certified CarbonFree® by CarbonFund.org that is being sold by AT&T. Sufficient carbon offsets were purchased to offset the carbon emissions demonstrated by a lifecycle analysis to be required for the manufacturing, transport, use and end-of-life phases of the device.
  • Recently, AT&T announced plans to introduce new plastic in AT&T-branded accessory packaging, which is comprised of up to 30 percent plant-based materials sourced from ethanol harvested from natural sugarcane.
