Mobile phone made from recycled water bottles!

As a build-up towards CES, Motorola has unveiled a mobile phone that has been manufactured entirely from recycled water bottle plastics. MOTO W233 Renew is being claimed by Motorola as the world’s first mobile phone made using plastics comprised of recycled water bottles.

Motorola also says that the phone is 100 percent recyclable and is also the world’s first carbon neutral phone. Through an alliance with, Motorola has offset the carbon dioxide required to manufacture, distribute and operate the phone through investments in renewable energy sources and reforestation.

Even the packaging and the materials inside are made from 100 percent post-consumer recycled paper.

The company has also included a postage-paid recycling envelope inside the box, making it easier for customers to return their old Motorola mobile phone for recycling for free.

Coming to the features of this phone, Motorola says that it as a no-nonsense phone and it is the most basic phone. One can only make calls and send & receive messages. That’s all. A simple phone.

Well, this is a huge step for Motorola, once again creating and setting the standards in a non-existent product category. That is the true spirit and soul of Motorola, which was missing in its products that was manufactured after the Razr era. I had once written a post on Motorola describing it as a phoenix that will rise from the ashes. Is this the moment? We have to wait and see.

Feels good! I am writing about Motorola after quite a long sabbatical.
