Corporations care about the enviroment!1111



Wow, so did you know that Fido makes phones from recycled plastic??

I had no idea that FIDO manufacturers telephones made by nokia, and other companies.

I also had no idea that Fido is in charge of cell phone manufacturing techniques...

This is incredible news... Now I can buy a phone from Fido knowing that they used recycled plastic to make it.

I laughed when I first saw that commercial. It's funny how people will actually believe that recycled phones will make any sort of impact, there's more material in a case of water bottles, and those are so much more disposable than a damn phone.

Just dropped 6 batteries into a trash can to make up for the recyclable cellphones. Winters are not hot enough.

fido doesn't actually manufacture the phones.....

Its a motorola phone:
MOTO W233 Renew

Canada’s first eco-friendly phone made partly with recycled water bottles. In fact, this phone’s housing is made from 25% post-consumer recycled plastics.

Also 25 % of a phone, a phone is usually a small device anyways, so 25% is what? 10 grams? LOL

I figured I'd make sure, since most of the time you have no idea what you're talking about.

That and your 4 lines of crap to start a thread didn't make much sense. It would help to reference the ad to whatever crap you are talking about.
