Just in time for the 40th Anniversary of Earth Day, Sprint has announced the eco-friendly Samsung Restore. Following up on last years über-green Reclaim, the Restore picks up where its predecessor left off and throws in more text-friendly horizontal sliding QWERTY keypad, 2 megapixel camera, MP3 player, Stereo Bluetooth and support for microSD cards up to 32GB (a 2GB card is included in the box). As for its actual green qualities, the phone is made of 27% post-consumer materials and its components are 84% recyclable, while containing extremely low levels harmful chemicals like PVC, BFRs, Phthalates and Beryllium. The packaging is completely recyclable as well, and all instruction manuals will be available online to cut down on paper waste. When it comes out later this summer, the Samsung Restore will be go for $49.99 on contract after mail-in rebates — definitely not a pocket breaker. Are you within an inch of being sold but need an extra little push? What if we told you it comes pre-loaded with a “Mother Earth”? Yeah, we knew that’d get you.
