At Samsung, sustainability is at the heart of everything we do, from our products, to our operations, to empowering the next generation. The climate crisis is one of the most critical issues of our time, and we are working to reduce the environmental impact of our products so that you can live more sustainable lives with affordable, innovative tech.

As we look towards International E-Waste Day on October 14, we want to ensure that consumers have the tools they need to join us in our efforts. Gen Z[1] has already made it clear that their number one priority is the climate crisis, with as much as 37% expressing that e-waste is a major contributing factor[2]. So what do you say?

Whether you are new to joining the sustainable movement or are interested in learning about more ways to fight climate change, Samsung has got you covered. Now available, our Print for everyday changes can help you make a meaningful impact on the environment. Start today and take action by:

Starting small: Tackle your e-waste. About 43% of Gen-Zers and 27% of Baby Boomers[3] use a junk drawer to store e-waste. Samsung’s global e-waste recycling program and network of partners makes disposing your e-waste easy. We have over 1,700 e-waste recycling drop-off locations in the U.S., which is more than 10 times the combined number of stadiums for every major U.S. professional sports team.

Buying green, saving green. Sustainable shopping doesn’t have to mean breaking the bank. Samsung offers a wide range of products with eco-conscious features, including over 350 ENERGY STAR certified devices. With ENERGY STAR, you can save about $450 on your household energy bills, while avoiding more than 4,100 pounds of greenhouse gas emissions.[4]
