Samsung Will Start Using More Sustainable Packaging

Samsung Electronics vows to use more environmentally sustainable packaging, including bioplastics and paper

Samsung Electronics will stop using plastic packaging in its products and accessories, including home appliances.

Samsung Electronics sent out a press release, announcing its intention to improve the packaging of its products with more environmentally friendly materials. When it comes to paper manuals and packaging, Samsung pledges to use only fibre materials that are certified by global environmental organisations such as Forest Stewardship Council, Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification Scheme and the Sustainable Forestry Initiative. Samsung would implement the change from the first half of 2019.

The EU, however, insists that it has no intention of changing the terms of last year's accord with London in any significant way. However, he suggested that he could be prepared to support it if the amendment had official government backing.


The decision involved input from various different teams at the company, including design and development, purchasing, marketing and quality control to truly capture Samsung's aesthetic while keeping the environment in mind.

The company mentioned the use of pulp moulds for holder trays that are used for mobile phones, tablets, and wearables. Instead of the glossy exterior, Samsung will now deliver the phone charger in matte finish. This makes it possible to pack the item without using a plastic film.

The plastic used for covering home appliances like TV, refrigerators will be replaced with bags made from recycled materials and bioplastics.

Of course, any such packaging switch is only as effective as the green credentials of the materials you bring in to replace traditional plastics. These materials are made from plastic wastes and non-fossil fuel materials such as starch or sugar cane, respectively. "We will adopt more environmentally sustainable materials even if it means an increase in cost". In 2017, a Greenpeace protestor hijacked Samsung's Mobile World Congress keynote to demand the company articulate how it planned to manage the 4.3 million Note 7 units it had recalled.
