In 2002 Americans throw away over 130 millions cell phones. That number has probably ballooned to over 150 million by now, if not more. The reason: obsolescence. Most cell phones are outdated in a few years and consumers are a fickle bunch. One company, The Greener Grass hopes to change that with the introduction of the LINC Lifestyle Concept Phone. Not only is the phone packed with features (Bluetooth, GPS, touch screen, etc) it is almost completely recyclable. Better yet, the company plans to institute a recycling program such that the consumer can send their current device back in exchange for a new one and they’ll handle the recycling process. The phone itself will contain no paints or adhesives, and the glass and aluminum parts can be recycled or reused in their raw form.
