Sony Ericsson Launch Recycled Mobile Phone - C901 Greenheart


I'm glad to see another of the major mobile phone manufacturers has decided to produce a handset which is more environmentally sustainable.
The C901 Greenheart is the first product to be developed with Sony Ericsson's sustainablity guidelines in mind.

Featuring a casing made from 50% recycled plastics and their first ever in-phone manual (which reduce the amount of paper produced per phone by 90%), this phone is full of eco-gubbins like a carbon calculating pedometer and light sensors to reduce energy usage. It also comes bundled with a low power charger and a 100% recycled plastic headset.

It is great to see Sony Ericsson joining the ranks alongside other phone manufacturers such as Motorola and Samsung designing and producing products for those of us who are more environmentally minded.

Onwards & upwards!



  1. really great post thanks a lot itz nice to see sony erricson recycle mobile phones it would definitely help us go green, i would like to add that There are steps to take to get the best amount for your phone. Use a mobile phone web site that shows you the best price you will get for the mobile. A great mobile comparison websites your could take a look at is - which compare offers from 10 recycling web sites, all the prices are updated on a daily basis, with all the latest prices for every single handset you can find of.

    It is very important that you are totally honest about the phone working or not. Honesty, is always the best policy and will also ensure that you are building up a solid trust with the mobile phone recycling companies. If you send them a non-working handset, which you said works, you are wasting yours and there time.

  2. I completely agree, it's good to see a company taking some responsibility in this current era of waste. More of us should be doing the same and looking to get into mobile phone recycling, as it could save us some money at the same time. With there being so many companies out there, we might as well take advantage of the opportunity.
