The world is in a bad shape and we have no one to blame. But, what we can do is to help recover the earth with our greener efforts and that certainly includes using a green phone. We had the excuse that there wasn’t one around but Sprint and Samsung have broken that jinx with the release of the Reclaim, which is an eco-friendly option made out of 80 per cent recycled materials. It is doing the rounds on the web as a corn phone and that is because it uses bio-plastic materials which are a derivative of corn. Also there is no place for PVC in the constituents and even BFR is barely used. Despite the unusual nature, you will find regular features like a QWERTY keyboard, a 2MP camera with flash and a slot for a whopping 32GB microSD card. The Sprint Navigation is on-board along with stereo Bluetooth as well.
The packaging is eco-friendly with 70% of it created from recycled materials and soy-ink used for documentation. Even the charging capabilities are energy efficient with a notification light flickering when fully charged and it requires 12 times less the Energy Star standards require for standby. The Reclaim is available for $50 on a two-year Sprint contract and will go public from August 16.
