Sustainable and renewable bamboo is used in the top plate
Finding ways to care for the environment involves creative and savvy thinking. Using bamboo in the clock's top plate is an eco-friendly step that also adds style to the product. Not only is bamboo an attractive material, it is also known to be more sustainable and renewable than trees. Growing quickly without fertilisers or pesticides, a bamboo plant can be harvested in three to five years, and each plant harvested multiple times. In addition, the preparation of bamboo for use in industry results in fewer pollutants and lower carbon dioxide emissions.
Recycled plastic housing and paper packaging materials
Taking a stand to be environmentally responsible, Philips has always made serious efforts to recycle. The benefits of recycling are staggering. It reduces the need for fresh non-renewable resources and takes away the strain from our already waning planet. It lowers the need for incinerations and landfills, which have very harmful effects on ecosystems and the environment. This clock is made from a high percentage of recycled materials. The entire casing is made of 100% recycled plastic, the paper printings are 100% from recycled paper and the packaging is produced with 90% content from recycled materials.
Hazardous controlled components for safer and greener living
Restricting the use of hazardous components marks Philips desire to create a safer living environment for the human race. On top of being fully compliant with RoHS directive, which restricts the use of commonly used dangerous chemicals like lead, cadmium and mercury. We have also further restricted the use of other hazardous components, for instance, PVC and BFR compounds are free from any plastic parts, circuit board, power adaptors and packaging, thus, minimising the impact on humans and our environment during use and disposal.
Plug and set the time automatically
Take the clock out of its box, plug it in and the time is already set for you - automatically. The intelligent clock reads pre-programmed data and sets the correct time according to the default time zone. If you are living outside the default time zone, all you have to do is press the Time zone button and the clock will reset the time. No more reading manuals, no more fiddling with buttons.
Time and alarm backup to wake up on time even with power cut
When there is a power failure, this intelligent clock will still maintain its reliable time and your settings. The scheduled alarm remains active even when its display is off - all thanks to a pre-installed battery. When the power comes back on, there is no need to adjust the clock or reinstate settings. More amazingly, even if power supply is not restored, the battery provides enough energy for the buzzer to go off at the alarm time you have set - making sure you never wake up late.
