LG Remarq environmentally friendly

Individuals who believe recycling mobile phones is important could be encouraged to hear that further green steps have been taken within the industry.

LG Electronics MobileComm USA has revealed the LG Remarq will be available from May 9th in all Sprint retail channels.

Sprint - a wireless industry organisation that delivers eco-friendly devices - will offer the LG Remarq, which comes with a full-sliding qwerty keyboard and easy access to Facebook.

Ehtisham Rabbani, corporate vice-president of marketing and innovation for LG mobile phones, said: "We're continually finding new ways to weave recyclable alternatives throughout our product line-up, continuing to show our commitment to change."

People may decide to recycle their old mobile phones in order to purchase this green handset, which has an outer casing made from 19 per cent post-consumer recycled plastic.

One company that consumers can use for recycling mobile phones is Envirofone, a firm that has donated more than £50 million to charities and consumers.
