Use of recycled mobile phone parts 'makes Nokia a green company'

The Nokia C7 may be a green-thinking release from the brand

There are many reasons behind Nokia's claim to be an environmentally-friendly firm, one of which is its use of recycled mobile phone parts when producing new devices.

Ian, writing the Nokia Conversations blog, refutes the claim that the Finnish brand does not have a green phone in its portfolio.

He says "lots" of the handsets offered are crafted with the world in mind and this starts with both recycled and biodegradable materials being selected for production.

Indeed, the Nokia C6-01 is the first mobile phone in the industry to feature reused metals, while the company demands its stainless steel is at least 75 per cent second hand.

Other factors that underline the organisation's green credentials include the low energy consumption of its models and a significant decrease in the amount of printed material that now comes with new devices.

Nokia will have a chance to put its eco-friendly attributes to the test when it releases the E7, C6 and C7 in the coming months.

Julie Snape, head of marketing at Envirofone, says: "As an environmentally conscious brand ourselves, we would always encourage people to go for the green option. If you recycle your phone with Envirofone, you can choose to offset its carbon emissions and you could even make some cash."
