Mobile recycling can protect the environment

Mobile recycling may be one option worth considering for consumers who would like to help to protect the environment.

However, Nokia has revealed that it is working hard to be eco-friendly in other ways too and told customers that it is "easy to be green".

Blogger Rhiain, writing on its Conversations blog, suggested the billion or so mobile devices made by the manufacturer used around the world every day were made with the Earth in mind.

She suggested that protecting the environment does not stop at the devices as "along with the green-fingered phones Nokia services also help us live more sustainable lifestyles. The environmental seed is planted from the off and continues through a product's life cycle".

This means minimising the environmental damage of products through operations including recycling, treatment of waste and recovery of used materials, she added.

Julie Snape, head of marketing at Envirofone, said: "It's great that businesses are making a conscious effort to be more green. It couldn't be easier to look after the environment and make money at the same time by trading in your old mobile phone."

Nokia recently revealed it plans to extend its free Ovi Maps service to the E71 and E66 handsets.
