Repurposed fishing nets are the new material used in your next Samsung Galaxy.

Gizmodo reports that Samsung revealed its new “creative” material in a press release. This mysterious information has been released a little before the expected Unpack 2022 event; A ceremony that will be held on Wednesday 20 Bahman 1400. In this event, the Galaxy S22 family will be unveiled. The Korean tech giant is said to be planning to use plastics that would one day end up in the ocean throughout its product line, and this policy will begin with the devices introduced in the Galaxy Unpacked.

Samsung is not the only company that uses sustainable materials in its products.
