GoodCleanTech reports that the Sony Ericsson Greenheart Concept phone was spotted at a Sony event last week in Copenhagen. The phone will be an amalgam of “green” factors, including a bio-plastic shell, HTML-based manuals, a recycled plastic keypad and an energy-efficient charger that uses only 3.5 mW of power during standby.

Chip in a few dollars a month to help support independent cleantech coverage that helps to accelerate the cleantech revolution!

In comparison, most efficient cell-phone chargers use 30 mW on standby.

The Greenheart concept was announced last week along with a new environmental warranty for Sony Ericsson phones. With the warranty, the phones can be recycled anywhere in the world if brought to designated drop-off areas. Currently, there are over 500 drop-off areas, and Sony plans to add more in the future.

The release date for the Greenheart phone is currently unknown, but its design should be an inspiration for all cell-phone manufacturers striving for environmental friendliness.
