Samsung push their green credentials with the E200 Eco

Mobile phones

Samsung_Eco_Phone_002.jpgSamsung has announced that it is going a bit green – and has illustrated this in as literal way as possible by actually colouring the phone a lovely shade of green.

The E200 Eco is going to be revised version of the E200 and will obviously contain more environmental friendliness than it’s predecessor. Apparently it’s cased in “bio-plastic”, which is made from corn and apparently emits 2.16 less tons of carbon dioxide during the manufacturing process when compared to regular plastic. The phone will also be sold in a recycled paper box.

Assuming that the E200 Eco matches up to the E200, then you can expect to find a 1.3 megapixel digital camera, an MP3 player and an FM radio inside. Just please try not to cause any noise pollution by playing your awful music without any headphones in.

Whilst this is certainly good news and a step in the right direction, it does also point out that most of the rest of Samsung’s product lines are not currently as environmentally friendly as they could be. Why can’t it make the rest of its products out of bio-plastic and make it the norm rather than the exception?
