This iPhone Case is Made from Trash
Looking for an eco-friendly case for your iPhone 4S? Check out the innovative Re-Case from Miniwiz, a carrier that uses trash and agricultural by-products to protect your phone in style.
The company combines by-products from the rice farming industry with post-consumer thermoplastics – including plastic bottles and bottle caps – to form its POLLIBER™ material, which is used for the Re-Case along with other products like the Re-Wine wine case and Polli-Brick™ building materials.
Reprocessed rice husks counteract the strength polypropylene loses as it is recycled – meaning a highly durable and recyclable material that is “able to be manufactured at an unbeatable minimum of CO2 emissions,” the company said.
Made from “100 percent trash” in accordance with the company’s slogan, the Re-Case not only holds your beloved iPhone but also credit cards for maximum functionality.
In addition to eco benefits, the ripple design of the Re-Case creates a tactile effect that is said to have stress-relieving properties, according to the company. So, checking those work emails may become surprisingly relaxing!
