If you’re in the market for a stylish green Xbox controller to add to your collection, or one that’s made in part from recycled materials, you’ll certainly want to take a closer look at the company’s new Remix Special Edition controller.

As shared in a post on Xbox Wire, the Remix Special Edition controller is partly made from materials like reclaimed CDs, plastic water jugs, and automotive headlight covers. Thanks to this, each controller boasts its own unique look and feel.

The Xbox Wire post goes on to talk about how the regrind process sees materials like leftover Xbox One generation controller parts mechanically recycled to partially create new controllers. Additionally, these controllers incorporate the aforementioned reclaimed materials such as CDs and plastic water jugs. As for why controllers are being made this way, it’s noted that “Xbox is exploring ways to use less new plastic and reduce waste.”

If you’re interested in scooping up one of these new Remix Special Edition controllers, pre-orders are open now with the controllers available at a price point of $84.99 (USD). While pricier than a standard Xbox Wireless Controller, it’s worth noting that the controller comes with an Xbox Rechargeable Battery Pack.
