Today, Samsung shared a few extra details on the new eco-friendly Galaxy S21+ protective case and how it was designed in collaboration with Kvadrat. Similar to last year, the new Kvadrat Cover is a result of Samsung’s Upcycling for Good program wherein the company aims to nurture an eco-friendly environment and give customers a choice to participate.

The Galaxy S21+ Kvadrat Cover was manufactured from upcycled plastic bottles that were collected, melted down and reshaped into 100% polyester yarn. The yarn was then dyed in two different colors, Violet and Mint Gray, to match the Galaxy S21+ exterior, and was then woven into fabric for the case. According to Samsung, a recycled 500ml plastic bottle can produce enough yarn for two Kvadrat Covers.

The new Galaxy S21+ Kvadrat Cover comes with a recycled inner frame

While the exterior of the Galaxy S21+ Kvadrat Cover has a textile feel and look to it, the interior a.k.a. inner frame that keeps everything together is more solid to provide additional shock resistance. But despite its appearance, it too was manufactured from recycled materials, though not to the extent of the exterior component.

The Kvadrat Cover has a recycled inner frame that was manufactured with at least 20% PCM (post-consumer materials). According to the company, this approach to utilizing PCM for the inner frame typically leads to a reduction in CO2 emissions that are generated during the production process. The same manufacturing technique was applied to the Kvadrat Cover’s hook.

The final component is the retail package itself and it, too, was manufactured in an eco-friendly manner. The packaging is made entirely from paper which, unlike plastic, is a biodegradable material.

The Kvadrat Cover is compatible with the Galaxy S21+ 5G and it’s available for $34.99 or regional equivalent. You can refer to the links below for more details.
