The Benefits of PCR Plastic in Tech

18 March 2024

Verbatim’s latest 100W GaN Charger has been generating some amazing feedback of late! It features advanced fast-charge technology that eliminates the need to carry multiple chargers for your digital devices. Instead, this charger can simultaneously power up your laptop, smartphone, tablet and smart watch…. All from a device that fits into the palm of your hand.

But it’s another feature of the 100W GaN Charger that has been a real talking point…. The first of its kind in Verbatim’s forthcoming ECO range, the housing of this charger is constructed from 95% post-consumer recycled (PCR) plastic.

What is PCR Plastic?

PCR plastic refers to plastic materials that have been collected from consumer products at the end of their useful life and reprocessed to create new plastic products. This recycling process reduces the need for virgin plastic production and diverts plastic waste from landfill and oceans, contributing to a more sustainable and eco-friendly approach to plastic use.

PCR Plastics – Benefits:

Using PCR plastic in our tech accessories has several benefits, including:

Environmental sustainability: PCR reduces the amount of plastic waste that ends up in landfills, oceans, and other natural environments, reducing the carbon footprint of the products and conserving natural resources.

Energy efficient: Manufacturing products with PCR requires less energy than producing virgin plastic, thereby reducing the carbon emissions associated with production.

Corporate Social Responsibility: Using PCR aligns with Verbatim’s CSR goals and demonstrates our commitment to environmental sustainability.

Reducing Landfill: GaN chargers not only streamline charging needs by replacing multiple traditional chargers, including bulky laptop bricks, but also contribute positively to the environment. By requiring only a single charger instead of several, there’s a notable decrease in end-user consumption, which can yield significant environmental benefits, with less end-of-life tech accessories ending up in landfill.

Plastic-free Packaging:

The 100W GaN Charger also features 100% plastic-free packaging, helping to reduce the production of non-renewable resources, lower greenhouse gas emissions, and minimise harm to our precious ecosystems. The adoption of plastic-free packaging in all future accessory product releases supports Verbatim’s global commitment to a healthier planet, driving positive change in the industry and promoting a more sustainable and responsible approach to packaging design and production.
