Samsung announced today a new set of eco-friendly accessories for its Galaxy devices. The Samsung Eco-Friends collection brings 55 different cases and straps for Galaxy Z Fold5, Galaxy Z Flip5, Galaxy Tab S9 series, Galaxy Watch6 duo, and the audio wearable Galaxy Buds2 Pro.
The design of the accessories was developed in partnership with Toiletpaper, Keith Haring, The Smiley Company, Pokemon, Minions, BTS and some more K-Pop-related art styles.
Every single product is made from recycled plastics, containing more than 40% PCM (Post Consumer Material) and vegan leather that is made from PVC (not from plants).
Samsung is putting its 20-something employees in the center of promoting the new series as part of its SMAPP - Samsung Mobile Accessories Partnership Program.
Samsung is partnering with SLBS (Slash B Slash) online store to launch the products in South Korea, starting today. They will also be available in physical stores across Seoul, the capital, and will later reach 40 more markets around the world.
