FYI, Samsung Galaxy S8 and LG G6 have been certified for being environmentally friendly
The smartphones were subjected to multiple tests focused on many environmental aspects, including the using of toxic materials, energy efficiency and corporations' social contributions.
But this isn't why Samsung Galaxy S8 and LG G6 are the first to get this special certification, but because the new mobile phone category for EPEAT has been launched this week for the first time.
Both smartphones have achieved the ECOLOGO Certification to the ANSI-accredited UL 110 Standard for Sustainability for Mobile Phone. The latter is a particular standard meant to evaluate a mobile's phone compliance with much needed environmental performance criteria throughout its lifecycle.
Moreover, Samsung and LG have been praised for their efforts to build environmental-friendly products by decreasing the use of toxic substances during the manufacturing process, as well as for improving device packaging and helping reduce e-waste.
The flagships launched this year by Samsung and LG will not remain the only ones that receive the EPEAT certification, but history only remembers who was first, right?
