Seven green cellphones

samsung-blue-earthI found this great article about seven green cellphones that are made from recycled materials and are solar-powered. Although my phone isn’t broken yet, I would consider getting a green phone when the need arises.

I once saw this news feature on CNN (or was it BBC?) that detailed how the tech gadgets we throw away accumulates and pollutes the environment. For one, the hardware isn’t biodegradable. And then there’s the battery leakage issue. If you just dump all those used cellphone batteries on some landfill, those nasty chemicals would seep through the soil, and somehow end up on the fruits and veggies you’re eating. If we do the Math, that means…possible cancer and other diseases. Yikes!

These green phones should be made available in the Philippines. Another social enterprise idea, anyone? =)
