Samsung Electronics announced plans for developing a new material that gives ocean-bound plastics new life as they’re incorporated into various Galaxy devices. It is made with repurposed ocean-bound discarded fishing nets.

According to the company, these ‘ghost nets’ are responsible for trapping and entangling marine life, damaging coral reefs and natural habitats and even ending up in our food and water sources. In a news release Samsung said:

“These discarded fishing nets are disrupting the delicate balance of our environment at an alarming rate. Collecting and repurposing these nets are vital first steps in keeping our oceans clean as well as preserving the planet and our collective future.”

It’s unclear exactly what part the repurposed plastics play in the upcoming handsets. For more information we’ll have to wait until this week’s virtual Unpacked event, where Samsung is expected to unveil the Galaxy S22 series and Tab S8, told PCMag.
