Samsung Restore phone continues green leadership with Sprint

Samsung Restore eco-phone on Sprint

Just because you want to have the latest in gadgetry doesn’t mean that Mother Nature has to take a backseat. Sprint and Samsung are both dedicated to green leadership. In celebration of Earth Day, the two firms are announcing the Samsung Restore cell phone.

This is the second “green” device resulting in this environmentally-friendly partnership. Available this summer for $49.99 with a two-year contract and $50 mail-in rebate, the Samsung Restore follows up on the Samsung Reclaim, a device made from 80 percent recyclable materials.

With the Samsung Restore, you get the Sprint One Click customizable user interface, a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, 2.0MP camera, MP3 player, microSD slot for up to 32GB of extra storage, stereo Bluetooth compatibility, and access to the full suite of Spint services. These include Sprint Family Locator, Sprint TV, and Sprint Navigation.

In regards to the “Earth-friendly design” of the Samsung Restore, you’ll find that the outer casing is made from 27 percent post-consumer recycled plastic and the handset itself is 84 percent recyclable. It means the strict RoHS standards and is powered by an Energy Star Version 2.0 qualified energy efficient charger.

The packaging is 100 percent recylable too; the cardboard box is made from 70 percent post consumer materials and it’s printed with soy ink. They’ve also ditched the conventional paper user manual, pointing buyers toward the online manual instead.
