As phone booths become more and more obsolete, companies such as Austrian telecommunications company Telekom Austria are trying to save them for other purposes. In this case, phone booths across Austria are being converted into recharging stations for electric cars.

Telekom Austria doubly embraces eco-friendliness by reusing a once-upon-a-time street staple and encouraging the use of electric cars in the city. Having unveiled the first of many in Vienna, using these stations will be free for now. For more info about Telekom Austria's initiative, visit the links provided.
