Google to Stop Using Plastic Packaging by 2025 Among Other Sustainability Measures

Climate change is perhaps the single biggest threat that humanity has ever truly faced, and a big part of the reason why that is the case has to do with the fact that it might just make the planet that we live on no longer capable of sustaining life at least in many major geographical areas. Big tech companies tend to be at the forefront when it comes to most things that have something or the other to do with how the world is operating, so it should come as no surprise that Google is one of the top companies when it comes to thinking of new ways in which their business can end up being as sustainable as possible.

Starting in 2016 when it first launched its very own Pixel phone, Google has been trying to make its business model sustainable by going for mostly cardboard packaging although a little bit of single use plastic did end up getting used here or there. The tech giant is now enacting a major change by pledging to completely ditching single use plastics by the year 2025, a pretty lofty goal with all things having been considered and taken into account and one that only a company as powerful and profitable as Google would be able to achieve.

It is important to note that if Google does something then other smaller companies would most likely end up doing it as well since it would become a trend and its major competitors would also have to follow suit otherwise they might just end up being left behind in some way, shape or form since people would think of them as old fashioned. As a result of the fact that this is the case, Google’s steps toward sustainability might just be what the world needs right now.
