Mobile Choice Green Award

Our winner was clear the Naite handset is made from 50% recycled plastics with an accompanying headset that¹s 100% recycled plastics. It¹s coloured with waterborne paint that lowers exposure to nasties often found in mobile phones, and its carbon footprint is 15% lower than the full lifecycle of comparable product, the Sony Ericsson C902. But what really tipped the scales in its favour was the inclusion of greenie apps the Carbon Footprint Calculator and the Ecomate app that ranks the green-ness of various activities. After all, knowledge is power (to change the world?).
