Sustainable Cell Phone Concept, to Preserve the Planet

FastCompany via Yanko Design writes up James Barber‘s cell phone concept, commissioned by Nokiam for a green design in mobile phones, using sustainable components.

Apparently, “for a cellphone used for 2 years, the energy used to create the phone is “roughly 3 times larger” than the energy used by the phone in it’s lifetime!”

James Barber’s trying to push those amounts of energy closer to equal. To do that, he’s created this extremely rough and tough phone with, easily replaceable parts, 85% of which are recyclable. It’s made to last 5 years.
