Sprint Goes Green With New Eco Mobile Accessories

Truly green cell phones, like the Samsung Blue Earth, are not yet available to US subscribers but Sprint's new eco-friendly mobile accessories are making the market a bit more sustainable.  Sprint was recognized by the EPA in October, 2008 as a 'Greenhouse Gas Reduction Goal Setter' after promising to reduce emissions by 15% before 2017. The company has also vowed to recycle at least 90% of their phones by the same deadline.
Two eco-friendly accessories have joined the Sprint product lineup, with a promise of more green mobile goodies to come:
The Universal Hybrid Charger is manufactured by Solio and uses 
stored solar energy to charge your cell phone, iPod, or digital camera. Solio offers a variety of clean energy charging solutions that store power for up to a year. The solar phone charger requires 8 to 10 hours of sunlight for a full internal charge - enough to charge your cell phone twice - and includes an optional wall or USB plug for faster recharge.
100% recycled fabric phone cases are supplied by Nite Ize and are universal carrying cases available in 2 sizes to accommodate most handsets. Nite Ize offers a variety of durable phone cases, but this is their first eco-friendly option. There are 2 versions to choose from - regular Tone with a convenient belt clip or Tone Nite Club with additional space for lipstick and ID cards. Both models are available in 2 colors.   
We can't wait to see more eco-friendly cell phones and accessories made available to US subscribers!
