Google says it will use recycled materials in all of its hardware products by 2022

Google today pledged to include recycled materials in all of its Made By Google products by 2022.

The portfolio currently includes hardware like Pixel phones, Pixelbooks, Google Home speakers, Nest, and accessories like phone cases and charging stands.

In an interview with Fast Company, Google said it had begun using recycled plastic in Chromecast devices and used plastic bottles to create the fabric on Google Homes and cases.

The move follows Apple’s green initiative to use recycled materials in its products, with the company going so far as to make an in-house robot that disassembles old hardware for parts.

Earlier this year, Samsung also announced a similar pledge, promising to use sustainable materials in its product packaging.

In addition to using recycled materials, Google also said that it would pledge to make all its shipments carbon neutral by 2020 to promote sustainability in its hardware division. In an interview with Fast Company, Google’s head of sustainability for hardware, Anna Meegan, said the team was able to reduce emissions by 40 per cent by switching from air shipments to cargo. (The article is unclear about the time period during which the reduction occurred.)

That mission means the team needs to better forecast their development and production process since cargo shipments take longer than air.

If you want to take part, Google currently has a recycling partnership program that will provide a shipping label for you to send in Google devices you no longer need. The program is currently limited to the US.

    I have been browsing online more than three hours today, yet I
    never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me.
    In my view, if all web owners and bloggers made good content
    as you did, the net will be much more useful than ever before.

    Together with every little thing which seems to be developing inside this particular area, many of your perspectives tend to be fairly radical. Nevertheless, I appologize, but I can not give credence to your whole plan, all be it stimulating none the less. It seems to everybody that your opinions are not entirely rationalized and in reality you are generally your self not even wholly convinced of the argument. In any case I did enjoy reading through it.

    Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point. You obviously know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your weblog when you could be giving us something informative to read?

    Its like you read my mind! You appear to know a lot about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you can do with a few pics to drive the message home a bit, but other than that, this is great blog. An excellent read. I will definitely be back.

    My developer is trying to convince me to move to .net from
    PHP. I have always disliked the idea because
    of the costs. But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using Movable-type on several websites for
    about a year and am concerned about switching to another platform.
    I have heard very good things about blogengine.net.
    Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress content into it?

    Any help would be really appreciated!

    You could definitely see your enthusiasm within the paintings you write. The sector hopes for even more passionate writers like you who are not afraid to say how they believe. At all times follow your heart. "He never is alone that is accompanied with noble thoughts." by Fletcher.
