These days, the iPhone is just as much a fashion statement and identity-marker as your fair trade bag, DIY jacket, and custom-dyed jeans. This little device, carried by millions, not only keeps you in touch with the people you love, but it also lets you stay connected to the web, listen to music, and look at funny pictures.
As a result of the iPhones increasing importance in our lives, there are tons, and I mean TONS, of fashionable cases out there to put them in. So, I wanted to highlight some fair trade, eco-friendly iPhone cases you can consider.
1. Global Goods iPhone Case
This cool case is fair trade made by artisans in Cambodia, and is sold by Global Goods. Better yet, it’s made from recycled rice bags!
2. MiniWiz Trash Case
I really love these eco-friendly iPhone cases sold by MiniWiz. They’re subtle, sleek, and sophisticated. And the coolest part is that they’re made using rice by-product (rice husks), which during farming and processing is usually thrown away. Instead, Re-Case is adding post-consumer thermo plastics, and turning them into iPhone cases. Yes, please!
3. True Bamboo iPhone Case
I love this bamboo iPhone case because it’s sleek, eco-friendly, and adds a natural feel to the man-made iPhone. It’s so elegant!
4. Bioserie iPhone Cases
This eco-friendly iPhone case, by Bioserie, might be my favorite (who can resist colorful stripes?) This iPhone case is made from biomass, which are naturally renewable non-food crop plants. There are a ton of different colors and styles on this site, and they’re definitely worth a looky-loo if you’re interested.
