Boulder, Colo.-based Renewable Choice Energy has teamed up with retailer Best Buy to offer Green Your Phone, a new retail product that enables cell phone users to offset their mobile device's electricity use with wind power.
Green Your Phone is loaded with 500 kWh of certified renewable energy credits (RECs) to offset the manufacturing and use of two mobile phones for two years – the average life span of a phone.
‘Green Your Phone provides our customers with a tangible way to support renewable energy,’ says Scott Moore, vice president of marketing for Best Buy Mobile. ‘We are dedicated to providing our customers a better choice of phones, networks and accessories, and this offering further extends that promise.’
Green Your Phone will be available at 1,000 Best Buy stores nationwide. The product includes two ‘Offset with Wind Power’ decals.
As part of the Green Your Phone product launch, Renewable Choice is providing 10,000 of these offsets free of charge to Best Buy Mobile employees to help launch the program and raise awareness of the environmental benefits of RECs.
A portion of Green Your Phone sales will fund Renewable Choice's School Power program, which is designed to support the development of wind facilities on school campuses across America.
