Do you do just about everything you can for Mother Earth, including having a bamboo wardrobe filled with hemp clothes? Do you ever think “man, I really could use a cell phone to quickly and efficiently organize tree sittings?” Do you wish that phone would have a built in Eco Calculator so you could calculate just how much CO2 you’re not pumping into the atmosphere by walking instead of driving (calculated in your choice of CO2 or trees planted)? If so, we strongly suggest you check out the newly announced LG Remarq from Sprint. Available on May 9th for $0 on a 2-year deal after rebates, the Remarq is made up partly of recycled plastics and the entire device will be 87% recyclable once the time comes for it to be powered down for good. Not only that, but its box is made of recycled brown craft paper, is printed with soy ink, and isn’t filled with wasteful paper manuals which will only to be made available online. Spec-wise the Remarq isn’t all that remarkable with a sliding QWERTY keypad, 1.3 megapixel camera and QVGA display, but let’s face it: you’re too busy saving the earth to be fiddling around with a brawny smartphone.
