Sprint and Samsung have just introduced the Reclaim, a super-eco cellphone made from 80 percent recycled materials. The eco-gadget is constructed from "bio-plastic" materials made from PLA or corn, is free of PVC, and mostly free of BFR (brominated flame retardants)... which are apparently naughty-naughty. The phone has a 2 megapixel camera, stereo Bluetooth, can accept microSD cards (we assume) up to 32GB, and has Sprint Navigation onboard. Even the packaging will be eco-friendly, made from 70 percent recycled content and printed with soy-based inks. The carrier will be selling the Reclaim in "Earth Green" or "Ocean Blue" (weird) come August 16th for $50 (after a $30 instant rebate and $50 mail-in rebate)
And to put some icing on the organic cake, $2 of that profit will be funneled to the Nature Conservancy's Adopt an Acre program. They got my attention... But will it walk my dog? Until my next un-eco-friendly blog post from my Apple iPhone... Vaughan, signing off!
