T-Mobile USA says that it has secured exclusive rights to the Motorola W233 Renew mobile phone – the plastics of which are made from recycled water bottles. Through an alliance with Carbonfund, Motorola also offsets the carbon dioxide required to manufacture, distribute and operate the phone through investments in renewable energy sources and reforestation, making it the first carbon-neutral mobile phone. We know that many of our customers are concerned about the environmental impact of the products they choose, and we share that concern, said Glenn Zaccara, senior manager of corporate responsibility, T-Mobile USA. T-Mobile is working to find ways to make it easier for our customers to limit their impact on the environment, and our partnership with Motorola to exclusively offer the Renew is a positive step along this journey.

In addition to Renew, T-Mobile also offers customers the option to sign up for paperless billing. In 2008, T-Mobile partnered with the Arbor Day Foundation to plant trees for customers who signed up for this option and, to date, has planted more than 500,000 trees.
