Of course it's green. The Moto W233 Renew also comes with a prepaid envelope you can use to send Motorola your old phone for recycling.
But the catchiest thing about this phone, being introduced at CES, is that its housing is made of recycled water bottles and can itself be recycled.
Motorola claims the device is carbon neutral, because it's buying offsets from Carbonfund.org.
T-Mobile USA will be the first carrier to offer the Renew this quarter. No word on whether it will include a Prius docking attachment.
Other stats from the release:
Optional 2GB removable memory
850 / 1900 GSM
45 x 110.97 x 14.7 mm
128 x 128 65K CSTN display (1.6") (user removable font housing)
Talk time up to 9 hrs (550 min.) and standby up to 18 days (450 hrs.)
