Hmm, a green phone, too bad it’s not actually green in color, now that would be something different than the basic black that most phones are.  In addition to being green $1 from each phone bought will go to Cell Phone for Soldiers.

AT&T and Samsung Mobile today announced the upcoming availability of the Samsung Evergreen, a quick messaging phone built with 70% recycled post-consumer plastics and packaging that utilizes 80% recycled post-consumer paper.  Samsung Mobile will donate $1 for every Samsung Evergreen device sold, with a maximum donation of $100,000, to the non-profit organization Cell Phones for Soldiers.  The Evergreen will be available beginning November 7 at AT&T company owned stores nationwide or at AT&T Wireless for $29.99 after $50 mail-in rebate.

Samsung Mobile and AT&T encourage consumers to give back to both the environment and to the armed forces serving overseas.

In 2009, AT&T collected more than 4.2 million cell phones for reuse and recycling and over 1.8 million pounds of batteries and accessories.  AT&T offers customers three ways to donate old cell phones and accessories: drop-off bins in our 2,000-plus retail locations; free, prepaid mailing envelopes available in the stores; and postage-paid mailing labels available via our web site at AT&T Reuse & Recycle.

The Evergreen, which has a 2.4” display, features a full slide-out QWERTY keyboard for effortless typing and texting.  With one-key access to messages, staying in touch with friends and family is easy and fun.
