Samsung is making headlines for all the right reasons. In order to reduce its carbon footprint, it has come up with a very neat idea to use the eco-friendly cardboard instead of hoards of it just wasting away. Samsung luxury TV line including models like The Serif, The Frame, and the rotating, portrait mode-friendly, The Sero are huge TV’s and they come packed in mountains of cardboard. Instead of just discarding it this cardboard packaging for The Serif, The Frame, and The Sero can be repurposed into shelves, useful household items like magazine racks and fancy cat houses. It’s actually a lot simpler than it sounds; The boxes from the various products include a dotted matrix design that customers can cut along in order to dismantle them for easier recycling or to reconfigure them for a new purpose. You should also know a simple step like scanning a QR code on the boxes with a mobile device grants access to instruction manuals for your next DIY project thanks to Samsung.
Samsung is taking this one step forward by partnering with Dezeen, a British lifestyle magazine, to award the customer who makes “the most unique and practical designs” out of the eco-packaging. The winner stands a chance of winning a total of $20,000. The competition ends on May 29, 2020. Hopefully, you won’t be moving houses soon after because what your TV came in is now a belonging of a feline and it goes with her.
