Apple isn’t the only manufacturer interested in environmental issues. The Chinese company Xiaomi is also ready to make its contribution to protecting the environment, which on Tuesday, October 20, announced a reduction in the amount of plastic in packaging for its smartphones. It is planned to start from Europe.

As follows from the post on the official Xiaomi page on Twitter, the company is going to reduce the amount of plastic used in the packaging of its devices by 60%. At the same time, Xiaomi emphasizes that it means only the packaging box, and not its contents, which will remain in place. That is, users should not worry that Xiaomi will remove the charger or USB-C cable from the box in order to reduce e-waste and carbon footprint. The brand will even keep the protective case that comes with some smartphones.

The first Xiaomi device to be packaged in a greener box will be the Xiaomi Mi 10T Lite smartphone. In Europe, its sales will start tomorrow, October 21, at a price of 250 euros for a model with 6 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal memory.

By the way, Xiaomi has already trolled Apple for the lack of headphones and a power adapter in the iPhone 12 package. The Chinese company, almost unanimously with Samsung, announced that its smartphones have a charger in the kit. As for Apple, it does not react in any way to the attacks of competitors in its address.
