Google has joined the fight against plastic pollution.

In a bid to promote sustainability, Google has announced a landmark move to make 100% of its products made from recycled materials starting 2022.

Made by Google products such as smartphones, smart speakers, home tablets, consoles, security cameras and more will be made from pure recycled materials.

This means that Google’s line of products will all become sustainable, such as the Google Pixel phone, the Nest Hub Max, the Stadia console, the Google Home Mini smart speaker, the Pixel Slate tablet, the Chromecast, as well as Google’s line of smart home devices like the Nest Hello doorbell, the Nest Thermostat E, the Nest Protect smoke alarm, all the Nest Cams, the Pixel Buds, the Daydream View VR accessory and more.

Google’s announcement comes as global companies start shifting to recycled plastics to create their products in a bid to curb the amount of garbage dumped into oceans and landfills.

Among the biggest companies to announce measures to solve the world’s plastic problem are Ralph Lauren, which made Polo shirts from plastic bottles; Nestle and Danone, which made a water dispensing system made from 100% plastic, as well as footwear giant Adidas, which made a line of shoes from intercepted plastics from the ocean. The Adidas x Parley shoes are currently available on Amazon.com.

As for Google, the company’s target builds on the tech giant’s sustainability commitments, which, among other things, aims to have 100% of all shipments going to or from customers carbon neutral by 2020, and to have all Google-made products 100% made from recycled plastics and other sustainable resources from 2022.

Meanwhile, Google added that it will expand access to technology for all users. Less than two weeks ago, Google has started offering 100,000 Google Home Minis for free to individuals living with paralysis in partnership with the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation, a charity group that is dedicated to improving the quality of life for people living with paralysis.
