Dallas, Texas 11/28/2013 (Financialstrend) – On Wednesday, Nokia Corporation (ADR) (NYSE:NOK) unveiled the Lumia 525 without too much of fanfare.

The Finnish culture
Finnish companies are known for their culture that is geared towards hard work and they also function in a very friendly manner. But what is above all that is that they are known to vociferously back environmental issues and though this may sound a little stereotypical, the fact of the matter is that Nokia Corporation (ADR) (NYSE:NOK) fits the description to the ‘T’. Apart from unveiling its new handset, the company is also going whole-hog on the recycling front with its Lumia 1520 casings.
For a greener world
And this is not just an exception- it is a trend that the Finnish giant has been following for very many years. In 2012, the company released the Lumia 820. It was a dream comes true for all the environment activists. The handset had been made with bio-plastics and recycled materials. Now the company is doing a ditto on this take. This time with its Lumia 1520!
Since the time MP3’s took on the music world, CD’s have taken a back seat and there is definitely a glut of them. And with innovation and its environment friendly concept in mind, Nokia Corporation (ADR) (NYSE:NOK) thought that it would be great to turn them into casings for smartphones and they went ahead and did just that. The Lumia 1520 makes use of these CD’s and it has added a completely new dimension to the recycling concept.
