In addition, Samsung intends to eliminate the power consumption of all its devices at rest, i.e. not in use, but plugged into the socket.

In partnership with clothing brand Patagonia, the companies will develop a washing machine that filters out the microplastics found in washing machines, preventing them from going overboard.
