Reducing Motorola’s environmental impact isn’t just for Earth Day – we work to make our devices more green every day. Throughout the lifecycle of our products, we strive to reduce waste and our carbon footprint.
In 2009, the MOTO™ W233 Renew was the world’s first mobile phone made of plastic from recycled water cooler bottles. With the goal of reducing Motorola’s energy consumption, we made a new recycled plastic that requires 20% less energy to make than standard plastic and saves thousands of water cooler bottles from finding their way into a landfill each year.
“But wait,” you say. “Making a device out of recycled plastic isn’t all that tough, right?” Wrong! We spent four long years in our labs, testing, reformulating and perfecting this material. We want to make sure it met the same tough quality standards we apply to other materials.
Since then, we’ve launched another six products with this material, including the Motorola CITRUS™ and SPICE™ and the P793 and P893 universal power supplies.
