Stylish Phone Cases That Don't Compromise The Planet

Mar 25, 2022by Gabby - F&F

With the growing amount of technology and advancements in our world, it only makes sense for companies to step up their sustainability game. Phones in particular are constantly upgrading — bringing in new colours and changing sizes from big to small, thick to thin. The result? We are always having to buy a new phone case.

Did you know that 1.5 billion phone cases are thrown away each year. That's a lot of plastic waste! Luckily we have companies like Pela and A Good Company who are offering planet-friendly solutions to our beloved phone accessories.

Let's explore how these two companies are changing the game and leading the way for a waste-free future.

About Pela

Plastic phone cases, whilst you may own it for a year or two, won't fully break down for 1000 years. This poses a huge threat to oceans and marine life, with the fate of the phone cases eventually becoming micro-plastics and ending up in wastestreams and ingested by animals. 

Pela  recognised that the world deserved better and as such, created the world's first compostable phone case, made from a proprietary blend of biopolymers and Canadian prairie flax shive. When your phone case is ready to retire, simply pop it in your home compost to break down (6 months to 3 years).

So far over 857,205 people have swithed to Pela and these customers have helped prevent 48, 433, 866 plastic bags from entering our oceans. An amazing effort!
