In an effort to reduce the use of plastic in its products, Sony designs fully recyclable, plastic-free PS5 packages for consoles and accessories.

In an effort to reduce the use of plastic, Sony has developed packages PS5 recyclable and plastic free for consoles and accessories. The PS5 launched in November 2020 and has since been breaking console sales records. It also managed to surpass PS Vita, Wii U and Dreamcast sales in the UK.



We can only imagine what sales would be like if the PS5 had a typical release. Unfortunately, the new console generation has taken a huge hit because of COVID-19 and China's complicated relationship with the United States in recent years. This has led to a shortage of PS5 and Xbox Series X/S components. This is an issue that will likely last another year or two. Because of this, PS5s will continue to be restocked in smaller supplies than players were used to in the past.

Regardless of the shortage, Sony knows it will sell a lot of consoles, and in preparation, it has invested resources in developing PS5 packaging that are fully recyclable and “depending on the product… 93-99% plastic-free overall (by weight).” ,” according to a blog post on the Sony Interactive Entertainment website. This is part of Sony's "Green Management 2025" initiative, which aims to "eliminate the use of plastic in newly designed small product packaging by 2025". The post includes a list of improvements Sony has made to its packaging, including replacing many earlier plastic items with paper versions and eliminating protective pouches for things like cables and manuals.

This serves as another shining example of how Sony and the PS5 continue to try to innovate in the gaming industry. However, there is concern about some of the games that are announced for the new generation. There is concern that Sony is placing too much hope on its established franchises. Players love hearing about sequels, but it's hard to deny the power of a new mystery IP. So far, little has been heard of new IPs from Sony's in-house studios, while sequels and spinoffs to God of War, Horizon Zero Dawn, and Uncharted have been confirmed.



Fortunately, it could be argued that the company's progress with the PS5's packaging actually serves a much greater purpose. Recycling and the use of plastic are issues that affect much more than just the gaming industry. PS5 updates and new games do little to solve the world's problems. Sony is letting the planet and the people on it know that the PS5 is doing its part. According to Sony's blog post, “Over the past 50 years, plastic use worldwide has increased about 20-fold, but recycling rates remain low at about 9%. “Although the PS5 is made of plastic, that doesn't mean the packaging has to be.
