Samsung has announced that its new line of recyclable smart phones  will feature an Android phone called the Replenish  and a feature phone called Restore . The Replenish is an energy-efficient phone made of 34.6 percent post-consumer recycled plastics and is 82 percent recyclable itself, also claiming to use fewer environmentally sensitive materials such as PVC, brominated flame retardants, beryllium, and phthalates. A battery cover with solar cells  on the back can be purchased as an accessory and the phone is packaged in recyclable materials  that are printed with soy ink.
The Restore also uses fewer environmentally sensitive materials and is both energy efficient  and composed of recycled materials. The Restore will be offered to Virgin Mobile customers without an annual contract beginning today, and is available with an inexpensive $25 per month unlimited data plan. The Replenish will be available May 8 for $50 with a 2-year service agreement.
