    (ANSA) – MILAN, AUGUST 10 – On the occasion of the Unpacked 2022 event, dedicated to the Galaxy Z Fold4 and Galaxy Z Flip4, Samsung also unveiled the Galaxy Buds2 Pro earphones. Their particularity is in their use, during construction, of over 90% recycled material. This is a new phase of the Galaxy for the Planet initiative, announced at the beginning of the year on the occasion of the launch of the Galaxy S22 smartphones, the first of the group with components born from recycled waste. For the Galaxy Buds2 Pro, Samsung uses a total of 29 grams of plastic; of these, more than 27 grams are recycled materials. “Each of these components contains at least 20% of discarded fishing nets (plastic recovered from the oceans) or post-consumer recycled materials,” explains the company. “Recycled fishing nets are used in three internal components of the charging case: in the front decoration bracket, in the battery holder bracket and in the PCB circuit board bracket. Post-consumer recycled materials are employed in eight external components: four components in the front left / right and back left / right of the case of both earphones and four elements of the charging case: front decoration, upper case, inside of the upper case and lower case “. As Samsung points out, the new Galaxy Z series also uses plastics recovered from the oceans in key components and 100% recycled paper for packaging. The company has also taken steps to reduce packaging volume by up to 58% compared to the first generation of Galaxy leaflets, which equates to a saving of 10,000 tons in transport carbon emissions this year.

    The Galaxy Buds2 Pro earphones are available in Graphite, White, and Bora Purple starting from € 229.00. (HANDLE).
