Consumers looking to recycle mobile phones in favour of a more environmentally-friendly handset may be interested in Motorola's latest accolade.

The firm was awarded the top prize in a number of categories at the CTIA Wireless 2009 event last week, including the E-Tech: Green Consumer Hardware award for the MOTO W233 Renew.

Made from recycled plastic bottles and manufactured to a certified carbon neutral standard the device was unveiled in January this year.

Jeremy Dale, corporate vice-president of global marketing at Motorola Mobile Devices, said it was essential for manufacturers to consider the importance of saving natural resources.

"From the product's design, to the packaging, to our partnership with Carbonfund.org, we wanted to ensure that this device makes the right impact with consumers and the environment," he added.

Other wins for the company came in the Best of CTIA Wireless 2009 Award for accessories, where the MOTOROKR S305 Wireless Stereo Headphones came out on top.
