Samsung to ban plastic packaging for more eco-friendly material: The Electronics Division of Samsung has updated its packaging policy to pay more attention to the environment.
The company announced that it will change the packaging of the product for its phones, tablets, and wearables.
As per the reports of Mashable, rather than using plastic, Samsung will use pulp mods as holder trays. For the accessories, it will use eco-friendly materials for wrapping.
The phone chargers will also be changed from shiny finish to a matte appearance that doesn’t require plastic protection film.
Not only the devices, but consumer appliances such as TVs, fridge, washing machines, and other kitchen products will also be not covered with plastic bags so as to come in recycled plastic and bioplastic bags.
These changes are expected to begin in the second half of 2019, whereas paper sourcing will be done by 2020.
