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.
