In a recent announcement, Google has stated that it has achieved one of its goals of using recycled materials in all of its Made By Google products. The company had pledged to achieve the goal by 2022 but have announced that they have achieved it early. Google's all the new Pixel, and Nest products are now designed with recycled materials. That's not to say its products are made entirely of recycled materials, but they at least include recycled materials somewhere in the product.

It is also reported that the back cover of the Pixel 5 is made with 100 percent recycled aluminum, and the new Nest Audio has 70 percent recycled plastic, with the sustainable fabric cover it introduced with the Nest Mini last year. And on the newest Nest Thermostat, the trim plate (the part that attaches to the wall) is made from post-consumer recycled plastic, informed Google.

Google's main focus is on incorporating recycled materials into its hardware design that supports sustainability commitments. It enables its supply chain partners to confidently invest in and develop these types of materials so that the wider consumer electronics industry can use them. The firm further said that it would achieve zero-waste-to-landfill certification at all of its final assembly manufacturing sites by 2022.
