Samsung is going green, really, really green
Samsung Electronics has just announced that its future products will be more eco-friendly than ever thanks to a new plan the involves replacing plastic packaging materials with paper and other environmentally sustainable elements.

According to the South Korean company, starting from the first half of 2019, Samsung's products and accessories, including mobile phones, tablet, and home appliances will feature packaging made from sustainable materials such as recycled and bio-based plastics and paper.

More precisely, phones, tablets, and wearables will come with pulp molds instead of holder trays made of plastic, while bags wrapping accessories will be made of eco-friendly materials. In addition, Samsung said that it will change the phones charger design but replacing the glossy exterior with a matte finish, thus removing completely any plastic protection films to reduce the use of plastic.

Finally, the paper that Samsung normally uses in packaging will be made of fiber materials certified by environmental organizations. All of the above will be implemented by a special task force that will take care of design and development, marketing and quality control for packaging.
