(Best Syndication News) - AT&T announced that they would be using up to 30 percent of a plant-based plastic that is made from ethanol to package the company’s accessory products. The plant-based plastic is made from natural sugarcane, which is a renewable resource, and replaces almost a third of the packaging that would have been used with fossil fuels.

AT&T has had an ongoing effort to make their product packaging more environmentally friendly. In March 2010, they initially announced plans to reduce the packaging for their accessories. In 2010 and 2011 these changes alone had saved over 500 tons of paper and plastic.
