The Samsung Galaxy S6 is undoubtedly one of the best Android smartphones of 2015. Although it is true that its curvy siblings, the Galaxy S6 edge and S6 edge plus, attracted more attention, it also managed to impress reviewers and common users alike. Now, it has added another feather to the cap as it has been awarded sustainability award from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
The Galaxy S6 has won the Sustainable Materials Management (SMM) Champion Award, Product category. With this, Samsung has also become the first brand to win the award. The smartphone was honored with the award because of the materials used in its making. As said by Samsung, the Galaxy S6 is 99.9% recyclable with its packaging being 100%. Not only this, even the phone's charger is partially made out of recycled plastic while the soy-bean ink is used for printing the materials included with the smartphone. It is also the only smartphone to be recognized by EPA's SMM program.
Additionally, Samsung also won the SMM Electronics Challenge Tier Award - Gold Level for its leadership when it comes to e-waste collection. It collected more than 114 million pounds of e-Waste in the U.S.
The Galaxy S6 was Samsung's flagship smartphone for 2015 and the company is gearing up for the launch of its successor, the Galaxy S7. The phone will be launched at Galaxy Unpacked 2016 event scheduled for February 21 during MWC 2016 in Barcelona.
