Today, natural resources, energy and time are more precious than ever before. That is why Motorola created the environmentally responsible Motorola W233 Renew mobile phone. Not only is the phone’s housing made using plastics comprised of recycled water bottles and 100 percent recyclable, but the Motorola Renew is also the world’s first carbon neutral cell phone. The Motorola W233 Renew delivers the quality you expect from a Motorola phone while empowering you to reduce your carbon footprint.

The Motorola Renew W233 handset was designed for eco-conscious consumers as well as the millions of people who put making phone calls as their number one priority in a mobile phone. Renew makes environmental responsibility affordable for people everywhere. Simple to recycle, The Motorola Renew mobile phone is the first cell phone to be made from plastics comprised of recycled water bottles, which means 20 percent less energy is needed to create the phone compared to standard plastic processes. Plus, the plastic phone housing is 100 percent recyclable, which promotes future environmental responsibility.

Carbon Free Motorola phone
Motorola is making it easier for you to support the environment. Motorola Renew is the first certified CarbonFree alternative to conventional mobile phones. Through its alliance with Carbonfund, Motorola offsets the carbon dioxide required to manufacture, distribute and operate the phone during its lifetime through investments in renewable energy sources and reforestation. Even the phone’s reduced packaging size and in-box materials printed using vegetable-based inks on 100 percent post-consumer recycled paper were created with the environment in mind. And, by reducing package size and weight, we help reduce transportation emissions. An in-box postage-paid recycling envelope also helps you easily return your previous mobile phone for recycling and contribute to environmentally responsible efforts.
