The green amongst you will be glad to hear that Sony Mobile’s sustainable ‘GreenHeart’ initiative continues with its newer portfolio of handsets. The company confirmed that the upcoming Xperia P, Xperia U and Xperia sola will all use recycled plastics and waterborne paint.

So what does this mean exactly? Well recycled plastics helps to reduce the use of oil based virgin plastics whilst waterborne paints lowers the emissions of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) versus solvent paints. Other green initiatives include recycled plastics on all of Sony Mobile’s headsets since 2011, chargers that have low power consumption (no load consumption of ? 30 mW) and minimised packaging. It’s good to hear that Sony continues to do its bit for the environment.

    I think this sounds like buying a used phone for thw price of a new one? I dont want a phone with plastics that someone else have used before me. Is this legal to sell phones with used parts as a new phone?

  • The Xperia neo was a greenheart phone too, I don’t feel that in any way using the device ;)

    But how can the P be a greenheart phone? Aluminium is not very enviromental friendly…

  • perhaps recycle aluminium.

    It is not used, it is recycled. Make the difference.

    You drink water from recycled bottles.

    And you breath recycled air
