How are phone companies trying to make cell phones better for the environment?

    The European Union adopted much stricter standards for cell phone manufacturing in 2006, which has forced the leading manufacturers to eliminate toxic materials from the products they sell. “The EU’s Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) directive entered into force at mid-year, banning the use of a number of hazardous substances like lead, mercury and BFR in electrical and electronic equipment.” Also, instead of recycling cellphones, they’re increasingly being reused after erasing all data from the phones’ electronic chips, cleaning them, and re-testing them to make sure they run as intended.
