"Green" Cell Phones

I started this post over one month ago with the high-minded intention of buying a replacement cell phone that was perhaps "less bad" for the world than others out there. Fast forward to a week or so ago and I bagged the research and went with what the IT guy said a few of the people in the office had already purchased, a Blackberry 8830. After searching Research in Motion's website for "e-waste", "product take back", and "recycling", I found something akin to a recycling program from 2003, the HopeLine program. Reality; I bailed on the research and just went with the easy choice someone else made for me.

I am not sure how I lost the Motorola Q, but it's gone. I think I left it on top of my car and drove away. Either it was smashed when it landed, smashed when it was run over by another car, or picked up by a passer-by and...who knows what.

Before I gave up on my green cell phone quest (one does not exist), I did find a few mentions of phones that may have been a little better.

LG Cyon, RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) compliance makes it "green"

A recent article in National Geographic reinforced the societal problems e-waste is generating. The rapid obsolescence of electronics along with societies becoming more affluent and demanding more gadgets is creating mountains of toxic electronic debris to be dealt with. Guess where much of it ends up? You guessed it, poor and developing countries.
