Sean Wotherspoon is more known among the sneakerheads for his designs and collaborations with big brands like Adidas. He has recently teamed up with the South Korean mobile giant Samsung’s version of the Galaxy Watch4 bands and the Galaxy S21 cases as a limited drop.
The Samsung Galaxy x Sean Wotherspoon Sustainable Accessories Collection has just been announced for the 2021 premium flagship and the smartwatch series. Samsung is trying to go greener, and one of its efforts is to offer more sustainable accessories. Samsung announces it in time for Earth Day. The limited-edition mobile accessories are sustainable, making them a helpful contribution to Mother Earth.
Designer: Sean Wotherspoon
Sean Wotherspoon is a plant-based designer that came up with three watchbands for the Galaxy Watch 4 and three phone cases for the Galaxy S21. They match the same print but are set in three different colors: Pink, Sky Blue, and Yellow. There are now available together with free watch faces you can download straight from the Google Play Store.
The new watch bands and phone cases are made from 100% biodegradable and recyclable materials. The series is actually the second release of sustainably sourced accessories by Samsung. In the future, we can expect more will be revealed as the company continues to team up with other eco-conscious designers.
Sean Wotherspoon’s design remains colorful like his plant-based sneaker designs released in 2018. He owns a vegan brand and is making waves in the eco-conscious fashion industry. Sustainable fashion is more than just a trend now—it is the future. His brand has been focused on raising awareness of the effects of our actions on our planet. His works aim to bring up the reality and start a conversation that will hopefully encourage others to be mindful of how they live.
Sean Wotherspoon is happy to be working with Samsung. He said, “From the start, it was clear that we were aligned on our commitment to sustainability and finding real eco-conscious solutions people can use in their everyday lives.” The new products from this collection are said to be a simple way to show support for the Earth.
The Sean Wotherspoon x Samsung collection shows off the designer’s love of style and love of the planet. The inspiration for the series is a mix of his hobbies and everything that makes him smile. The collection is also meant to encourage and inspire positivity and mindfulness in the world.
The three styles of watchbands (Orchid, Dawn, and Rain) are made of eco-conscious TPU material. It is non-toxic and doesn’t come with DMF residue. It can be recycled at the end of its life, so we can consider this safe for the planet and biodegradable. All products are available for $49.99 each. You can purchase straight on Samsung.com and the NTWRK app.
Samsung’s sustainability efforts seem to be going in full swing—slowly but surely. The first series from Samsung was released in September 2021 and was a collaboration with Sami Miró. The Los Angeles-based fashion designer’s collection with the tech giant included three watch faces and six watchbands for the Galaxy Watch4.
Samsung’s Galaxy for the Planet campaign is here to stay and will continue to focus on reducing the company’s environmental footprint. The effort is meant to foster more sustainable lifestyles for the community of Galaxy users. For example, plastics in mobile packaging must be eliminated by the year 2025. Another goal is to include recycled materials in all mobile products by the same year.
A more sustainable world is possible with similar efforts not only by Samsung but also by other brands. The South Korean tech brand has also launched the Samsung Certified Re-Newed. This campaign aims to offer refurbished phones with a lower carbon footprint.
The unit’s parts of this effort have the same quality and performance as new devices. They are updated and inspected within a Samsung factory. If needed, they are upgraded with a new battery or certified Samsung parts. Even the one-year warranty offered is the same as those brand new Galaxy smartphones.
If you’ve been planning to buy a new premium flagship smartphone from Samsung but want to spend full price, you can consider the CRN Galaxy S21 series. You can receive up to a $100 e-certificate to use on select products and accessories and save up to $200.
