Sprint Announces Green Packaging for Accessories Smaller, Eco-friendlier Sprint Packages to Save Earth One Day at a Time

Sprint is still having problems at reaching the number one spot in the
U.S. mobile business but the company is the best when it comes to
environmentally friendly endeavors. As stated by the official press
release, Sprint is ranked at #15 on Newsweek s Green Rankings which is
higher than any other telecom company.
And the company will not stop there! Sprint has announced that it has
totally redesigned accessory packaging and we can expect the new cases
to be as eco-friendly as possible.
Starting with November all accessories sold in Sprint stores will be
offered to you in a new eco-friendlier, smaller and totally recyclable
package. Said cases will be 20 to 40% smaller in size than the previous
versions which will help save 647 tons of waste every year. The new
packaging technology will also cut down packaging costs by 35% which
will basically save Sprint a cool $2.1 million every year. So we re not
talking only about eco-friendliness here, are we Sprint?
We have a list of accessories that will arrive in brand new, fully
recyclable clothing for you:
Samsung Instinct HD Protective Carry Wallet
Blackberry Tour Holster
Motorola i856 Holster
Jabra C150 Behind The Ear Wired Headset
HTC Hero Silicone Gels
Samsung Reclaim Clear Ice Phone Cover
Samsung Instinct HD Gels
Samsung Intrepid i350 Silicone Gels
Micro-USB Vehicle Power Charger
Palm Micro – USB VPA
Mini USB VPA – Rim 7250/7520/7100i/Ppc6700
Samsung VPA – M300.M510
The packaging itself will not contain any PVC which is replaced by PET 1
which a more recyclable solution. The petroleum-based ink is also
replaced by soy and vegetable-based inks which should reduce the levels
of volatile organic compounds around us.
With all the attention we pay to cell phones and hot smartphones, it is
good to remember at least once in a while that those products will be
turned into waste at some point in the very near future. So why not try
to recycle more cell phones-related materials?
