• Compostable Phone Cases You Need To Check Out

    I wanted to put together a post on all of the compostable phone cases that are out there. So you can shop new cases without stressing if they are eco friendly and compostable. I love a new phone case, as it makes you fall in love with your phone even more and it really changes things. Plus you can personalise them to your personality and outfit choices.

    I currently have one compostable phone case from Pela, and I’m hoping to add more to my collection as the years go on. I also love using Popsockets for holding my phone and using them as stands when watching videos and things on my phone. Although they aren’t compostable or there isn’t a version out there that is, you can still reuse them on other cases aslong as you preserve the sticky gel on the back. You can also switch the tops to match your mood or phone case.

    8 COMPOSTABLE PHONE CASE BRANDS YOU SHOULD BUY FROM // CHECK THEM OUT BEFORE YOU BUY YOUR NEXT CASE

    Pela Case – £28.95

    Pela are my absolute favourite phones cases as they are so soft and nice to hold and I also love their phone grips as well. They are a lot softer on your fingers compared to Popsockets which are made of plastic, no matter how pretty they are I won’t any new ones. I am gutted that Pela have only a select few colours for my phone model, so I really hope they bring out new ones soon. They have more colourful and patterned ones for iPhone models which is annoying.

    “Beautifully designed and eco-friendly, Pela cases are the world’s first truly sustainable phone case. They are durable enough to protect your phone from drops and scratches and are also 100% compostable! As part of our mission to create a waste free future, Pela is a proud member of 1% for the Planet so we can support organizations who are working hard to better the planet.

    The Pela Case is made of Flaxstic®, which is comprised of compostable bioplastic elastomer and flax straw materials. Our material has been tested to be safe and free of phthalates, BPA, cadmium and lead and is verified to meet child safety standards in the U.S., Canada, Europe, Australia and New Zealand.”

    Incipio – Organicore – $39.99

    I love the colours of their phone cases, especially the dusty pink and mystic blue! Will definitely need to pick up all of these at some point.

    “We’ve improved our eco-friendly Organicore Collection, featuring material made from plants, by adding Impact Struts Technology, to create a case that delivers 8 ft. of drop protection. Organicore delivers 25% better protection than before while remaining 100% compostable. What does 100% compostable mean? That every Organicore product is guaranteed to break down completely in a proper compostable environment, leaving only good stuff behind. And for every Organicore case sold, 1 tree will be planted.

    • • 8 Ft Drop protection
    • • 100% Compostable plant-based protection
    • • Impact Struts protection tech reduces impact force
    • • Raised-edge bezel protects screen
    • • Works with MagSafe charger and wireless charging
    • • 5G compatible
    • • Lifetime guarantee”

    THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BIODEGRADABLE AND COMPOSTABLE

    Biodegradable – capable of being decomposed by bacteria or other living organisms and thereby avoiding pollution. Refers to a product breaking down into natural elements, carbon dioxide, and water vapor by organisms like bacteria and fungi.

    Compostable – is the process of recycling organic waste so that it can eventually be reused.

    77Visual – £9.99

    They are a brand I’m also featuring unfortunately their website is currently being revamped so I don’t have their phone cases available to write about at the moment. You can buy a few from their eBay but there isn’t many on there.

    Wave – £15

    Wave are ones I am yet to buy and try out but they do look pretty awesome.

    “Protect your phone and the planet with our eco-friendly Samsung S20+ case made from wheat straw. The Wave Case is a great plastic-free alternative for anyone looking to be more environmentally conscious. The ultra-thin design with precise hole positioning makes them a perfect fit for your phone. With a slightly matte texture, you can be sure that the Wave Case provides excellent grip to protect your device.

    Redhan – £37

    Redhan are an awesome UK based phone case brand that caters for both Android and Apple phones and also AirPod cases. I have a couple from them for my phone and I can’t wait to get some more when new colours are released. They are reasonably priced as well.

    ”Our cases are made from what we refer to as ‘Plantstic’ which is a bio-composite containing natural wheat fibres and bio polymers.

    This case gives back –

    • • 5% of every case goes towards fighting the plastic crisis – through Beleaf (Maldives)
    • • A tree for every case – planted to carbon compensate the case.”

    CaseMill – £22.99

    CaseMill are a new find that I found on Etsy which is amazing. They have a great range of biodegradeable phone cases for both Apple and Android phones and I love their neutral collection. I like that their range of phone cases are patterened, rather than just plain colours so whether you like bumble bees or a neutral sunset landscape – these cases are perfect for you.

    ”Our Bio case designs are UV printed onto the back of the case with industry-leading printers and ink technology. The design is not a sticker. Please note the design is on the back of the case, it does not go round the sides of the case. Also it is the nature of the case that the materials used do show through the design slightly.

    • No plastic- a truly compostable case
    • Made from PLA, PBAT & a Bamboo fibre plant based polymer
    • A smooth case with access to ports
    • Impact absorbing & a slight lip around the front of the case
    • The design itself is UV-printed with a matte finish and a slight raised feel
    • Compatible with Wireless Charging”

    Coconut Lane – £30

    It’s the first time I’ve seen such a popular phone case shop selling biodegradable phone cases. They have a small collection at the moment but I’m sure that will grow, they also have cut designs and a good range of phone model options too.

    Protect your phone AND your planet!

    Here at Coconut Lane we have always wanted to bring out a phone case which can be fully recycled. Now that the material technology exists to offer a 100% biodegradable phone case – we are so excited to launch our very own.

    • • Made from PLA, PBAT and Bamboo Fibre
    • • Compostable 60-90 days in normal landfill
    • • Water-based Ink”

    Kempii – £29

    Unfortunately these phone cases are only available for iPhones at the moment but hopefully they will be released for more phone models soon. I do love the engraved quote ones like ‘Karma Is A Beach’ and ‘Ground Rules’.

    “With just 2mm thickness, this 100% biodegradable iPhone case is the perfect fit for your phone. The anti-shock features provide 360º protection against drops and bumps. The slick design protects the camera when it comes in touch with surfaces and includes a resistant scratch-finish.

    This iPhone case is compatible for wireless charging – no need to remove your phone from the case. Each case undergoes intensive testing and quality checks before it reaches your doorstep. Made from wheat-based sources, your biodegradable iPhone case will return to nature at the end of its life.

    3% of each sale is donated to Rainforest Trust to support and protect endangered species, threatened rainforests and other tropical ecosystems.”
