Sony's latest cameras are garbage. We mean that quite literally of course. Sony has detailed how much plastic recycling goes into making the material in its latest cameras and other consumer electronics as it sets out its Road to Zero carbon-neutral plan.

Sony has produced a video demonstrating how its proprietary recycled plastic – SORPLAS – has dramatically reduced how much virgin plastic it uses in its consumer products. Virgin plastic is plastic that is made directly from raw materials (derived from oil) for first-time use, with virgin plastics currently making up 70% of all plastics used in consumer electronics.
