New WA cell phone is ‘climate neutral’
In the interest of persuading the company’s extremely tenacious PR person to give me a moment’s peace, I’d like to direct your attention to the new (and world’s first!) "climate-neutral phone" from Working Assets.
(Moral hazard alert: The phone is climate neutral through the purchase of offsets, which we all know are just medieval indulgences that allow you to continue guilt-free with your decadent, profligate, cell-phone-talking life, you dirty consumerist scum.)
WA was a socially conscious company before being a socially conscious company was cool. My family’s been going through them for our long-distance service for years, and recently switched our cell phone plan over as well. We get good service; we feel good about ourselves; birds chirp and ponies poot rainbows. It’s a beautiful thing.
