Green (Eco-friendly) Phones


Green phones are manufactured to be environmentally friendly through the use of green practices in production and materials that are environmentally preferable. These eco-friendly phones generally use less energy and recharge efficiently, are not made from toxic materials, have low radiation emission rates, and were made through environment-conscious methods. This way, people can more effectively recycle them and if they are thrown out, they won't cause as much pollution. Over 125 million phones are tossed out yearly in the US alone, almost all of which can leak out harmful substances. Check out our list of the most recent eco-friendly phones:
