The Renew was announced earlier this year

Motorola has emphasised its commitment to mobile recycling and other green measures in its latest Corporate Responsibility Report.

The manufacturer of handsets including the ROKR, RAZR and Aura has announced it will continue to work in a more environmentally-responsible manner.

This will include producing mobile phones made from recycled materials, such as the MOTO W233 Renew - which is made from reused water cooler bottles and is the first in the world to be given the CarbonFree certification.

Sanjay Jha, Motorola's co-chief executive, said it is not just its latest phones that will focus on cutting waste and energy use.

"Our newly designed mobile device chargers, for example, use 0.10 watts or less of standby power - reducing wasted energy," he explained.

"Software in our newly designed mobile phones reminds users to unplug their chargers after use."

Those looking to purchase a greener handset could find recycling mobile phones to be a useful way to generate the cash needed to buy one.
