Technology To Reduce Pollution
In a newly announced collaboration, Samsung is coming together with American clothing company Patagonia. As unveiled at CES 2022, this collaboration will promote environmental sustainability by addressing the issue of microplastics and its impact on the ocean environment. Patagonia CPO Vincent Stanley shared his thoughts during Samsung’s keynote speech on the significance of this collaboration and the direction it will take, calling it an example of how companies can “help turn the tide of climate change and restore nature to health.”
Patagonia is well-known for its commitment to innovative materials that lessen harm to the planet.

Samsung has been researching features designed to help overcome the negative impacts of microplastics.
