The new device is made from recycled plastic called PCM. Ecology supporters will be happy to know tha the PCM is extracted from water bottles, thus reducing fuel consumption and carbon emissions during the manufacturing process.
The device features a solar panel on its back, so users can skip using the charger and rely instead on the power provided by nature.
