Google has pledged to use recycled products in all its Made By Google hardware products by 2022. The tech giant has also pledged a safer carbon-neutral shipment program by next year, 2020.
This would mean all Google Pixel phones, Google Home speakers, Next, Pixelbooks, and all other accessories will have recyclable materials.

The giant American tech company confirms that it had begun using recycled plastic in Chromecast devices.
This is coming after Apple started a green initiative that required it to use recycled materials in its products. Apple also went ahead to create a robot that disassembles old hardware materials for its recyclable parts.
Samsung joined the tech giants last year in making a similar pledge. In 2018, Samsung promised to use sustainable materials to make packaging for its products.
On Google’s part, it has pledged to make all its shipments carbon neutral to promote sustainability in its hardware division.
Google’s head of sustainability for hardware, Anna Meegan in an interview said the team has been able to reduce emissions by 40 percent. This it would achieve when it switches from air shipments to cargo.
In this new green move, Google’s shipments will probably take longer as it will be via cargo. Google is also currently running a recycling partnership program. The program will let users of Google hardware products get a label they can use to send in old devices they no longer need.
Unfortunately, the program is only currently available to their American customers. Hopefully, it extends to other parts of the world including Nigeria.
