What you need to know

  • Microsoft announced its Ocean Plastic Mouse today.
  • The shell of the mouse is made of 20% recycled ocean plastic.
  • The Microsoft Ocean Plastic Mouse is available for preorder now for $25.

The Surface Laptop Studio, Surface Duo 2, and Surface Go 3 may have stolen the show, but Microsoft announced plenty of other devices today. At risk of being lost in the flurry of major product announcements, Microsoft unveiled its Ocean Plastic Mouse. The accessory is made of 20% recycled ocean plastics and is available for preorder for $25.

The shape of the Microsoft Ocean Plastic Mouse appears identical to that of the Microsoft Bluetooth Mouse. It’s an ambidextrous design with a scroll wheel in the middle. Unlike the Microsoft Bluetooth Mouse, the Microsoft Ocean Mouse has a speckled shell that appears to show off the microplastics used to make it.

The shell of the Microsoft Ocean Plastic Mouse is made of plastics recovered from oceans and waterways. Plastic is collected and processed into recyclable pellets that are blended to create the mouse’s shell.
