Samsung is joining the global effort to reduce the amount of plastic waste produced around the world.
The international company has announced that it will start ditching the plastic packaging surrounding the electronic devices and appliances it sells.
The company explained in a statement that they will be replacing those packages by paper, pulp molds and bio-based or recycled plastics starting in the first half of the year.
Gyeong-bin Jeon the head of Samsung’s Global Customer Satisfaction Center, said that the company is working to address “society’s environmental issues such as resource depletion and plastic wastes,” and that it wants to minimise the waste that it produces.
According to The Verge, the tech giant is pledging to use 500 thousand tons of recycled plastics by 2030.
