Today Sprint announced the Reclaim from Sprint, a phone that was made with 80% recycled materials. The phone's charger consumes 12 times less power than the Energy Star standard requires. The outer casing is made from 40% bio-plastics and the packaging materials are made form 70% recycled materials. The Reclaim is a slider with full QWERTY keyboard, 2 megapixel camera with video capture, GPS, Bluetooth 2.0 with A2DP, support for up to 32GB microSD cards. It runs the OneClick user interface and has easy access to a number of eco-friendly guides and web sites. The Reclaim costs $50 and will be available in all Sprint channels starting on August 16. Along with the Reclaim, Sprint plans to reduce paper consumption by 30%, help raise consumer awareness of eco-friendly usage, and reduce the energy consumption of its stores and operations.

This soon!

I'm kinda surprised to see a handset, especially in the U.S.! That is 80% recycled this soon, and these green things being taken into consideration, the charger using less power is pretty cool also. Certainly a step in the right direction, and I guess I'm not too, too surprised that Sprint is the first U.S. carrier to carry such a handset, they seem to have a green sort of thinking, I say that cause I know you can drop off old batteries at Sprint stores, as far as I know, Sprint is the only carrier that it's stores dispose consumers old batteries.
I thought that the best way to dispose of a battery was your closest garbage can... Laughing

And the phone looks very ugly green...
T-Mobile has a recycled green phone. They've had it for a long time now. It's for prepaid. Sprint is not the first. Sorry
yeah, this phone is deifnitely awesome, too bad I just upgraded Sad

While other networks are working to improve their network, Sprint is working to save the world. How noble... Laughing
haha they gotta start somewhere Cool
Sorry did i miss where this phone was made by sprint? No, okay. Thanks for your hating Rolling Eyes
well except for the fact that Sprint has the most aggressively expanding data network of any carrier in the US, i'm not sure if you're attempting humor, ignorance or both.
Yes. But if the world were not saved, there would be no need for Phones. Very Happy
lol indeed noble
