TeamGroup launches the C175 ECO Net-Zero Flash drive from waste

On June 5th, World Environment Day was celebrated worldwide and Team Group introduced the C175 ECO Net Zero Flash Drive. The novelty has a read speed of up to 100 MB/s, but the main thing is that it is made of three quarters of recycled plastic (PCR, post-consumer resin).

The C175 ECO compact flash drive supports the USB 3.2 Gen 1 transmission standard and is available in capacities of 64 GB, 128 GB, 256 GB and 512 GB with read speeds of up to 100 MB/s. Most importantly, it’s made from 75% recycled plastic and TeamGroup claims to have reduced CO2 emissions by 69% during the manufacturing process.

Currently, more than 347 million tons of e-waste have accumulated worldwide. In 2021 alone, 57.4 million tons were produced, and this number is growing by a few million tons per year on average. According to the company, every C175 ECO sold saves two sheets of A4 paper or part of a 600ml PET bottle. So 100,000 C175 ECO flash drives sold reduce waste by 9,200 PET bottles or 203,000 sheets of paper.
