People looking to recycle an old mobile in order to boost their green credentials may find replacing the device with a new handset from LG could help them reduce their carbon footprint even further.

The South Korean manufacturer’s GD510 – which is also referred to as Pop – features a solar-powered battery that means owners are not required to consume energy by plugging the phone in – they simply need to leave the device where there is plenty of natural light.

LG explained: "Ten minutes under the sun provides up to two minutes 15 seconds of talk time or up to 180 minutes of standby time."

Meanwhile, people who like to keep a track of their carbon dioxide emissions may welcome the inclusion of an eco-calculator that shows owners exactly how much energy they save by using the handset’s green technology.

The mobile also includes a full touchscreen, as well as an integrated media player.

Another option buyers may wish to consider is LG’s recently-released BL40 Chocolate phone.
