Microsoft made a wireless mouse from recycled ocean plastic
The hull is made with 20% recycled ocean plastic, which is created from waste collected from oceans and waterways and made into resin pellets. These pellets are added to the other materials that are used to make the shell.
The box in wood and sugar cane fiber in which the mouse is delivered is fully recyclable, and does not include plastic. You can also send in your old mouse for free and Microsoft will recycle it. Microsoft says the Ocean Plastic Mouse is a small step forward in its “greatest journey to sustainability.”
There are three customizable buttons on the mouse, which support Bluetooth 4.0 at a range of up to 33 feet. Microsoft says the device will run for up to 12 months on a single AA battery. The mouse also supports Swift Pair to help you connect it to your computer. The Ocean Plastic Mouse will ship on October 5th the same day Microsoft will release Windows 11, and it costs 25 $.
