Earth Day is the day we take care of our Planet.
Earth Day is the time of the year where we are reminded that we need to take care of planet… that we need to do something to make Earth a better place. Recycling an old Cellular phone and acquiring a new but recycled and environment friendly phone is a good way to care for the Earth in long-term way.
For Earth Day, we give you a list of Eco-Friendly Phones out there with some reviews from CNET (all of which are from Samsung, who tops at manufacturing green phones); “We are committed to being an environmentally and socially responsible corporate citizen” said Geesung Choi, President of Samsung’s Telecommunication Business. “We strive to make more products as green as possible to proactively set up and expand a phone recycling system”
Samsung E200 ECO (2008), its whole external case is made from bio-plastic, contains natural plant-based materials extracted from plants.
Samsung E1107 Solar Guru is the first solar powered phone in the market. Samsung has stated that 1 hour of sunlight charging equals to 5-10 minutes of talk time depending on lighting conditions. Aside from being solar powered, it also features an FM radio, a flashlight, a mobile tracker and a 800mAh battery.
The Samsung Blue Earth, which is also known as Samsung S7550 or Samsung GT-S7550 was released last 2009, November. This touch phone is made from recycled plastic culled from plastic water bottles.

Remember, there are no other planets like ours so far… and while we are living and being taken care of this planet, we should take care of it as well. Earth day reminds us each year, as we tend to forget that we also have to take care of the Earth that is taking care of us.
