Phone recycling about to get easier

Last year I wrote an article about mobile phone makers' efforts to recycle old phones.

One of the companies I spoke to for the article, Motorola, has teamed up with the University of Warwick and PVAXX Research & Development Ltd. to create a mobile phone casing that can be composted and sprout a flower.

According to environmental research organization INFORM, in the U.S. alone, 130 million phones are expected to end up in landfills next year.

Faced with a statistic like that, let's hope these kinds of recyclable materials find their way into phones sooner rather than later.
