Google to make sustainable products from fabric made from recycled bottles

Google to produce 100 percent of it’s product via recyclable material by 2022 and also added that by 2020, 100 percent of all the company shipments going to or from customers will be carbon neutral.

Google is ready to make its products more sustainable. Google says that between 2017 to 2018, it cut its product shipment carbon emissions by 40 percent, which will apparently provide “one million energy-saving Nest thermostats to families in need by 2023, and many Nest products are already made with post-consumer recycled plastic.”

In a tweet shared by the company, Google says that starting 2022, 100 percent of its ‘Made by Google’ products will include recycled materials and will maximize recycled content whenever possible. Google’s Anna Meegan, Head of Sustainability, Consumer Hardware further wrote in a blog  that by 2020, 100 percent of all the company shipments going to or from customers will be carbon neutral.

 

Apparently, it took Google’s product team two years to make sure that the new sustainable fabric met design and manufacturing requirements and that vendors could supply it at scale. Now, each unit of the material will reuse a third of a plastic bottle. Google has decided to swap industry-standard polyester fabric for fabric made from recycled bottles.That’s the kind of thing we may see more frequently beginning in 2022.
