You can buy Nokia phones in all sorts of tints and shades but no matter what model or colour you choose; you will always be buying a phone that is good for the planet.
That’s because all Nokia devices are made with the environment in mind. Like, for example, the materials used to help make it and, just as importantly, specific substances that were not used to help make it.
In addition, energy-saving features and the use of recyclable packaging are further testament to your Nokia phone’s green credentials.
The eco innovators
This sustainable ethos to the manufacture, use and recycling applies to all Nokia phones. At the same time, some phones will have new environmental innovations and features that can then be gradually implemented across the entire range.
So why do they deserve such exalted status?
In common with all other Nokia phones, they are free of PVC, BFR (brominated flame retardants), and RFR (chlorinated and brominated compounds and antimony trioxide).
The Nokia Asha 311 contains bio plastics and the Nokia 808 PureView and Nokia Lumia 610 includes recycled metals.
All the elements within these three phones can be recovered as materials or energy. The minimal packaging is also 100% recyclable and the user manuals are electronic to reduce the need for printed papers.
As well as what it is made out of, how a phone operates can also serve the sustainability agenda.
The three ‘eco heroes’ have energy efficient features such as power saving modes, automatic screen brightness adjustment and chargers with low standby power usage.
The Nokia 808 PureView and Nokia Lumia 610 can also help you to live a greener life.
Nokia Transport, Nokia Maps and Nokia Drive are apps that can help you use public transport, find the quickest route in a car (and help to reduce fuel consumption) or guide you as you walk to your destination.
They are not the only ‘eco apps’ either. The Nokia Store has a Green Channel Collection that makes it easier to find, download and install all the sustainability-themed apps, games and content.
More than a Game
Being environmentally responsible doesn’t mean you can’t have fun at the same time.
Nokia’s Climate Mission 3D is an exciting game where the challenge is to ‘virtually’ reduce global warming. The game consists of three different types of challenges where you either shoot fruits to plant new trees, merge small icebergs to create big ones or collect needles to build a nest.
The game also includes tips on how you can reduce your own ecological footprint.
The Nokia Asha 311 comes pre-installed with Climate Mission 3D and another game called Green Farming to help raise awareness and engagement with sustainable living.
Climate Mission 3D is now also available in the Windows Marketplace, for devices such as the Nokia Lumia 610.
So, with Nokia’s ‘eco-hero’ devices and these great apps and games there’s no longer any excuse for not helping to save the planet!
Download Nokia Climate Mission 3D by searching for the title in Marketplace on your Lumia device. If you have a Symbian smartphone, a version is available here.
