Samsung uses green packaging for the Galaxy S10 line

Samsung uses green packaging for the Galaxy S10 line
Samsung released an infographic today related to the environmentally friendly packaging it is using for the Samsung Galaxy S10 line. Instead of plastics and vinyls, the company employs "environmentally sustainable materials." It also redesigned the packaging; in the past, Samsung used a sleeve to cover the entire box, added a holder tray and a bottom box. The Galaxy S10 packaging uses only the bottom box. Samsung states that the new box "includes an all-in-one pulp mold that optimizes space for the devices and their components, and minimizes waste." The company has replaced plastic ties with paper and now uses a matte finish (as opposed to glossy) on the Galaxy S10 charger. That allows the company to get away without covering it with a plastic protective film.

It was back in 2013 when Samsung introduced its first packaging that was made from 100% recycled material (discarded paper). The first 100% recycled foldable box came out the next year. By 2016, Samsung started using natural materials for its plastic packaging, and in 2017 and 2018 the company debuted pulp mold packaging. This is a thin, solid material that is completely recyclable. Now, Samsung is shipping the Galaxy S10 in completely plastic-free boxes.


Besides using recycled paper for the Galaxy S10 packaging, Samsung employs soy ink. This is created from soybeans and is a natural alternative to regular petroleum-based ink.
