Besides being second “Coolest Brand” across all categories in the Sunday Times Generation Next Survey 2019 and the “Coolest Cell Phone” for the fifth year in a row, Samsung also strives to be environmentally friendly.
As part of an effort to help create a greener future for generations to come, Samsung has equipped the Galaxy S10 with simple, eco-friendly packaging that utilizes environmentally sustainable materials instead of plastics and vinyl.
The smartphones’ boxes and interior packaging have been redesigned so as to reduce their environmental footprint and consume fewer resources.
While previous devices’ packaging included a box-covering sleeve, a holder tray and a bottom box, the Galaxy S10 retains just the bottom box and includes an all-in-one pulp mold1 that optimizes space for the devices and their components, and minimizes waste.
Other eco-friendly adjustments include replacing plastic ties with paper materials, and outfitting the smartphones’ chargers with a matte – rather than glossy – finish that doesn’t require a plastic protective film.
Vice President of Reliability Group, Mobile Communications at Samsung Ilseob Baek says the company remains deeply committed to developing eco-friendly packaging materials.
“We will continue to support international efforts to make our planet more sustainable by utilizing eco-friendly materials in more products.”
Samsung has been steadily increasing its use of eco-friendly materials in its mobile devices’ packaging for several years now starting in 2013 with its first 100% recycled packaging, made entirely from discarded paper to its first plastic-free packaging design with the Galaxy S10 line in 2019.
