The Eco-Friendly Phone Case by Pela

by | Oct 5, 2017 | Home Goods, Zero Waste

The PELA CASE is your eco-friendly phone accessory!

Why is the Pela Case a better option?

The Pela Case is made in Canada out of Flaxtic, a substitute for petroleum-based feedstock that is a combination of flax straw “waste”, plant-based biopolymers, and recycled materials. It is BPA, phthalate, lead and cadmium free. This case is biodegradable! When you are finished using it you can place it in your compost bin. If you don’t have one, Pela has a program where you can send it back to be recycled into more Pela products.  During manufacturing, Pela reduces their foot-print by sourcing their needs from local businesses and using pre-exisiting facilities instead of new ones. 1% of their sales are donated to non-profit environmental organizations to help protect our planet. And finally, they use minimal and plastic-free packaging. Your case will arrive in a 100% recycled paper envelope that is compostable!

My old phone case had seen better days and it was time to replace it. I am quite the clumsy person always dropping my phone. Luckily, the Pela Case is durable and fits snug to the iPhone. The visible specs are flax shives that provide strength and natural shock absorption.  It is lightweight and flexible but still has a high-quality feel. It is also smooth with a subtle grip-like texture, making it easy to slide in and out of pockets or bags without the fear of dropping it.

Pela has a variety of color options and engraving editions for iPhones and Androids. The case I purchased is part of their Aspirations Collection. I also have a Save the Waves Limited Edition which donated $5 to the organization.

Lastly, each case ordered comes with a delightful hand written note showing love for your support.
