Google promised to incorporate recycled materials into all its Made By Google products by 2022. Currently, the portfolio involves hardware such as Pixel phones, Pixelbooks, Google Home speakers, Nest, and accessories such as phone cases and charging stands.
Google said it had started using recycled plastic in Chromecast devices in an interview with Fast Company and used plastic bottles to make the fabric on Google Homes and cases. The move follows the green initiative of Apple to use recycled materials in its products, with the company going so far as to make an in-house robot disassembling old parts hardware. Samsung also announced a comparable commitment earlier this year, promising to use sustainable materials in its product packaging.
