A new trend has arisen in the world, it is fashionable to be environmentally friendly. Companies began to bake with a special zeal for the environment. The packaging is exclusively made from recycled materials, the chargers are now eco-friendly, and Apple has set a goal to make the iPhone recyclable.
At the beginning of last year, Samsung also announced that all instructions and packaging will be made from raw materials that do not harm the environment. It also intends to recycle materials for reuse. For example, the Galaxy S22 series uses material created from discarded fishing tackle.
Samsung said it has developed a new material that combines sustainability and innovation to reuse ocean plastic in various Galaxy devices. It is based on discarded marine fishing nets and is designed to minimize the impact on the environment.
The company noted that it will use marine plastic across its entire product line, both now and in the future, with new Galaxy devices being the first to be unveiled at the Unpacked event on February 9th.
