Belkin has announced an overhaul of its most popular charger at CES. After two years of work, the company has found a way to use up to 75% post-consumer recycled plastic in its best-selling charging products.
Belkin shared the news in a press release, showing off new products at CES.
“Belkin, a global leader in consumer electronics, today unveils new product materials for its best-selling mobile power products, after two years of development. Belkin’s most popular wireless chargers, power banks and wall Chargers, and some of our car chargers, will receive an updated product housing material consisting of 73-75% post-consumer recycled plastic (PCR) and plastic-free packaging, transitioning to production in 2023 starting from 2020, saving an estimated 7,000 tons of carbon emissions and reducing the CO2-equivalent emissions of these products by up to 67%.”
Belkin stresses that it is taking meaningful steps to support the circular economy by reducing our reliance on post-consumer plastic, while also using plastic destined for landfills to give it new life. Therefore, we deliberately chose Post-Consumer Recycled (PCR) plastics.
Below are Belkin’s first products coming in new PCR builds in 2023.
“From an aesthetic, quality and engineering standpoint, there is little difference between existing Belkin products and Belkin PCR products. New PCR products can be decoded by displaying clear callouts such as “Packaging”. ”
And as Belkin celebrates its 40th anniversary, the company is nearing 100% carbon neutrality in its Scope 1 and 2 emissions, and expects to reach that milestone by 2025.
