Samsung Galaxy S22 will be developed from fishing nets

Samsung has revealed that the new Galaxy S22 will be developed from recycled discarded plastic fishing nets.

The actual company messaging states, “incorporate repurposed ocean-bound plastics”, not just in the S22 but across the whole product line up.

The Galaxy series will be the first products to receive this recycled plastic upgrade, however what is still unclear is how much of the device will be produced from this recycled plastic.

The Guardian recently reported 640,000 tonnes of the stuff is dumped or lost to the ocean each year, so it’s definitely worthwhile to start clearing that up.

Samsung has stated that the “ghost nets” pose a serious threat to both marine life and that of coral reefs.

“These discarded fishing nets are disrupting the delicate balance of our environment at an alarming rate,” the company wrote in a blog post.

“Collecting and repurposing these nets are vital first steps in keeping our oceans clean as well as preserving the planet and our collective future.”

Samsung has admitted it is only a small first step, but they are looking to introduce further measures in the future.
