The Reclaim from Samsung hits some great green design points, including the elimination of several toxic materials, use of 40 percent corn-based plastics for the casing, switching to a digital users manual, and eco-friendlier packaging. While it isn't a perfectly green cell phone, it's an excellent low-cost option for consumers, priced at just $50. And an affordable greener cell phone is key to helping consumers switch to more sustainable gadget habits.
