Only Label Power Works Here

Upgrading a redundant cellphone means adding to the pile of toxic trash that accumulates all around the world. The Label With Green is a concept phone aims at weaning you off the upgrade mania. To power the phone you need to use ECO-Green Electronic Labels, which are solar paper labels that juice up the phones various components (display, speaker, keypad, camera, and solar battery) independently. So to turn on any function, say display, you need to stick on enough solar labels onto the rear cover to power it.

The more functions of the phone you want to use, the more solar stickers you need to paste on the rear.

The idea is to make you conscious of the amount of toxic waste being accumulated due to improper disposal of electronic gadgets, our greed for upgrades and the amount of energy we consume to power our stuff. Essentially you can use this concept for a variety of gadgets. A noble cause, an excellent idea, but too cumbersome to follow!

    That… could backfire. Most people that would use will say “f$%k this”, and buy a regular phone.

    Toxic trash won’t accumulate if people drop their dead batteries off at mobile phone shops. From there, companies should take the responsibility to properly dispose of said materials (instead of dumping them into the ocean) with proper oversight patrols in place.

    Don’t know about you… But i would totally buy this! Expecially since you could tatoo it etc. Plus it’s as flat as a book and won’t sink to the bottom of a purse! Duh..
    … When can i buy this?

    It seems a quite Environmentally friendly design. I believe it must be very useful to replace the mobile phones nowadays. Especially the knockoff cell phones is getting popular in some countries. Of course, it is hard to manufacture at this moment, but to provide a very conceptual good idea to help the Earth is a very successful approach, is it?
