Google plans to produce its smartphones and notebooks using recycled materials by 2022
Google representatives announced that the company plans to make "Made by Google" products using recycled materials by 2022, and that their devices will be carbon neutral by 2020.
Recycling materials will be used by Google for products that are made under the "Made By Google" program: Pixel smartphones, Pixelbook laptops, Google Home smart speakers, Nest thermostats, as well as cases, charging cradles and other accessories.
Google noted that some of their products are already made from recycled waste.
For example, Chromecast devices use recycled plastic, and Google Home speakers and cases use recycled plastic bottles.
Google has also already been able to reduce its emissions by 40% by changing its logistics procedures, using cargo ships instead of airplanes to deliver its products.
By 2020, Google plans to make all its devices carbon-neutral. This means that the amount of harmful emissions into the atmosphere during the production of the company’s products should be reduced to a minimum.

Google employees use a huge amount of equipment, gadgets, computers, many of them have reached the end of their life, some are out of order.
Google takes all these circumstances into account and has decided to recycle its own equipment to create new hardware products from the resulting recycled material, which will again be used in the work of the company directly within its offices and representative offices.
Other companies are also trying to make production more environmentally friendly.
For example, Apple also uses recycled materials such as plastic, aluminum, and tin. The company has even developed its own recycling robot named Liam, which takes apart old iPhones for parts and independently sorts through everything from cases and glass to chips and fixing screws.

This recycling robotic system is deployed near Apple’s Cupertino headquarters and consists of 29 robotic modules capable of holding the iPhone and quickly and accurately disassembling it into its component parts.

The robot sorts parts individually for reuse or recovery of valuable metals such as aluminum, copper, tin, tungsten, cobalt, gold and silver. It takes only 11 seconds to disassemble one smartphone, and working continuously at full power, Liam can handle several million iPhones in a year.
Liam’s robot has been under development for more than three years. Apple intends to expand the robot’s capabilities so that it can dispose of various devices of the "Apple" company. A second similar system Apple is going to launch in Europe – there, too, the program of exchanging old iPhones for new ones is gaining popularity.
To become more "green" this year also promised in the company Samsung, stating its intention to use environmentally friendly materials for the production of packaging components of its products.
