Samsung Repurposes Discarded Fishing Nets For New Galaxy Devices

In a move that combines sustainability and innovation, Samsung Electronics developed a new material that gives ocean-bound plastics new life as they’re incorporated into various Galaxy devices. Made with repurposed ocean-bound discarded fishing nets, the use of this material marks another step in their Galaxy for the Planet journey that aims to minimize environmental footprint and help foster more sustainable lifestyles for the Galaxy community.

Now and into the future, Samsung will incorporate repurposed ocean-bound plastics throughout their entire product lineup, starting with new Galaxy devices that will be revealed on February 9th at Unpacked. These devices will reflect their ongoing effort to eliminate single-use plastics and expand the use of other eco-conscious materials, such as recycled post-consumer material (PCM) and recycled paper. With this transformation, the future of Galaxy technology will bring leading product design and deliver better environmental impact.

Samsung has always pushed the boundaries of mobile technology, and the company is now looking to do the same with its sustainability practices. By giving new life to discarded fishing nets that would otherwise become dangerous waste, Samsung – through its creative solution – exemplifies how they can all do more with less to conserve the planet’s resources.

Repurposing ocean-bound plastics is just the first step in their collective mission to address the climate crisis, and Samsung looks forward to using their scale, innovation and open collaboration to uncover additional solutions.
