Samsung's sustainability vow

Samsung are planning to make their product packaging more sustainable in 2019.

The South Korean firm has vowed to implant changes to the materials their gadgets come in, even if it comes at a bigger cost to them.

Global Customer Satisfaction Centre head, Gyeong-bin Jeon said: "We are committed to recycling resources and minimising pollution coming from our products.

"We will adopt more environmentally sustainable materials even if it means an increase in cost."

This will include using recycled or bio-based plastic instead of plastic bags and trays.

As well as packing, they are even looking at making their phone charger more eco-friendly.

This will mean they will have a matte feel.

They have also promised to no longer use plastic film for protective covers.

The proposed changes come after Greenpeace piled on the pressure on electronic companies to become more sustainable.

As a result, in 2018, Samsung Electronics announced they would switching to renewable energy sources at all of their factories by 2020 in America, Europe and China.
