As part of its efforts to reduce the environmental impact of its operations and products, Electrolux has created a vacuum cleaner made from 44 per cent recycled material.

Dubbed the Ultimate700, the vacuum cleaner claims to be as powerful as its predecessors but with lesser environmental impact.

It boasts a paint-free surface, with colours developed using recycled plastic formulations that range from 36 per cent to 44 per cent material by weight – depending on the colour and nozzles.

The vacuum is also designed to be completely cordless and lightweight, at just under three pounds.

“The development of the Ultimate700 was driven by the same approach to sustainability that ensured we recently achieved our science-based climate target three years ahead of plan,” said Ricardo Cons, CEO of Electrolux Group North America. 

“For future products we develop, we’ll continue to add more recycled content at increasing levels. This is just the beginning.” 

The Electrolux Group said it aims to increase the amount of recycled material used in its products to 50 per cent by 2030.
