Credo Mobile is one of those type of wireless providers which piggy-backs on someone else’s wireless network – in this case Sprint – to provide its own brand or spin on being a mobile carrier. Credo’s focus happens to be cause-oriented, meaning it gives some of the money you pay it to progressive groups supporting different causes. It is now offering for your eco-leaning ways some environmentally friendly accessories.
Credo is selling for its customers and others the Iqua, a solar powered Bluetooth headset, as well as the Tread handset case made from recycled tires and the Solio Charger, a solar powered charger designed to charge various portable devices. These items will run you around $100, $25 and $100, respectively.
I’ve personally decided to take Credo Mobile for a two-year spin by ordering its Motorola Moto Q smartphone. While I’m not sure exactly how this extended experiment will turn out, I do think Credo has a worthy thing going on here. The dedicated sales of these type of eco-accessories only seem to strengthen this focus. I could, of course, just be a sucker as well – time will tell.
