A few parts on Samsung’s latest Galaxy devices were constructed using recycled materials.

Recently Samsung has uploaded a few videos on the company’s official YouTube account to showcase a few parts of the latest Galaxy devices which were constructed using recycled materials. All the related video was straightforwardly informative to demonstrate the internal part of each device in more details of which components were made out of post consumer materials.

Since the release of the Galaxy S22 series, Samsung continues to use repurposed abandoned fishing nets to design the new Galaxy Z Fold 4, Z Flip 4  and Galaxy Buds 2 Pro. Samsung has demonstrated that the components of recycled materials include connector brackets, speaker assemblies, the backside of the side and power buttons, display connectors, and hinge brackets, and more.

It’s interesting to note that the cradle case and earbud cases for the Galaxy Buds 2 Pro are made 90% of post-consumer materials. The earbuds also use recycled fishing net materials for small internal parts like battery holders and PCB brackets.

Since announcing the Galaxy for the Planet vision at Unpacked in August 2021, Samsung has worked relentlessly to develop new ways to recycle and repurpose resources that would otherwise become harmful waste, reduce its environmental footprint, and inspire innovation that aids in the preservation of the planet. 

Beginning with the release of the Galaxy S22 series, Samsung has used 100% recycled paper for its products packaging. This year, Samsung was able to save the equivalent of nearly 51,000 trees through the Galaxy S22 and new Galaxy Z series products packaging.
