The limited edition Samsung Galaxy x Sean Wotherspoon collection is the second installment of sustainably sourced Galaxy accessories, following in the footsteps of last September’s Sami Miro Galaxy Watch 4 watchband collection.
Colorful and eco-friendly, the products will be available to purchase for $49.99 on Earth Day, April 22 at 10 a.m. Eastern on Samsung.com and include curated Galaxy S21 cases and Watch 4 watchbands in three matching styles: orchid, yellow and sky blue. In addition, you can now download free Sean Wotherspoon watchfaces on the Google Play Store.
Crafted from non-toxic TPU material, these accessories are biodegradable, have zero plastic and can be fully recycled when it’s time to swap them out. Wotherspoon, a streetwear aficionado who is best known for designing Nike’s ultra-popular plant-based Air Max 97/1 in 2018, is also the co-founder of sneaker and vintage darling Round Two, and creator of Sean Wotherspoon designs. His collaboration with Samsung is inspired by his favorite things, like the flowers in his garden and his son’s love of dinosaurs.
The new series is part of Samsung’s Galaxy for the Planet, a five-year plan of broader sustainability efforts that includes the use of recycled materials and repurposed fishing nets in all their mobile products, and aims to eliminate all plastics in packaging by 2025.
