Phones with biodegradable cases have graduated from prototype to real world product. The NEC N70i in the picture, is currently available in Japan.
Made from potatoes, corn and kenaf, the handset will decompose in your compost instead of adding to the landfill. Don't forget to remove the battery before tossing it though.
And wouldn’t you know it? The manufacturing process uses far less CO2 than your average petrochem-based plastic mobile. There's a good chance you'll find this eco-friendly phone in Europe next year, so stay on the lookout!
