Green technology not "the poorer option"

There is no reason why those with environmental concerns should not have the most up-to-date mobile phones and technology, it has been suggested.

A spokesman for BusinessGreen.com, a multimedia publication which advises companies on improving their eco-credentials, noted consumers should be able to benefit from greener gadgets without fear.

In news which may encourage mobile phone recycling as a means to get the latest contracts, site editor James Murray said new developments meant green electricals do not necessarily mean "the poorer option."

"By definition, technology companies are very innovative, very cutting edge, so they embraced a lot of these energy issues five or six years ago and they are now bringing them all to market," he added.

A recent survey from Greenpeace looked at the changes that were being made to mobile phones, TVs, computers and other items to identify which were considered greenest.

Earlier this month Motorola announced the MOTO W233 Renew - the first of its kind to use recycled plastic water bottles in its manufacture.
