NEWS: Techology?

A couple of weeks ago in the CityHippy Week Al mentioned a superb new mobile phone development.

We are all used to our mobile phones needlessly doing so much more than just making calls (just ask Al who gets email and everything on his) but this is one phone advancement that I am happy to talk about.

The launch of the 'Eco Phone' is astonishingly good news and indicates a real flurry of green activity by business.

Essentially it is a handset that is at the pinnacle of recycling - it is made of a biodegradable, nutrient-filled material AND contains a sunflower seed!

The idea is to benefit from the 'throw away' society we have become - you simply 'bury' your mobile when you no longer need or want it. Then this clever little phone will reward you by growing into a sunflower! Obviously you should not get rid of it until its life is at an end but we all know that each year people want the next best thing. Question is: will those people buy this phone...probably not. But if one phone can do it someone will offer it and raise the bar forcing others to follow suit.

Green hugs
