Anker introduces eco-friendly USB-C cables: incorporating a variety of plant-based materials

Well-known accessory brand Anker launched today a series of USB-C charging cables, and the biggest highlight is the integration of a variety of plant-based materials in the production process. TheseĀ eco-friendly USB-C cables have the Anker Eco Product logo, and they are part of the company's commitment to eco-innovation to reduce petroleum-based plastics in product development.

It is no secret that the consumer electronics industry has a plastic problem. Every year people around the world use approximately 622 million USB cables. It takes about 43,000 tons of oil and about 9,000 tons of plastic to make these cables, and those numbers will only continue to increase.

The outer jacket of Anker's new bio-based cable is sustainably manufactured from 40% plant-based materials such as corn and sugar cane. This innovative new cable reduces the use of petroleum-based plastics such as thermoplastic elastomers (TPE) without sacrificing quality, strength, or durability.

"As a global leader in mobile charging, we have a responsibility to explore ways to reduce the environmental impact of e-waste from our products and packaging," said Steven Yang, CEO of Anker Innovations.
