I am glad to see more products being made with recycled plastics. If we could just recycle the majority of the plastics already out there, it would save so much oil and so much of our resources. Cutting down on plastic use is great but we can't ignore the mega-tons of the stuff already out there.
Case-Mate Offers iPhone Cases Made From Recycled Plastic
Case-Mate has released a new iPhone case made from 100% recycled post-consumer PET bottles — the plastic in soda and water bottles. Case-Mate says one recycled water bottle equals one iPhone case.
“As part of our greater effort to encourage more sustainable practices, we’ve introduced a line of fashionable, functional and environmentally responsible cases,” said Shashi Reddy, Case-Mate’s Chief Executive Officer. “By creating Case-Mate products using recycled materials, we’re helping millennials stay stylish and environmentally conscious.”
The $30 case comes in 6 colors, pink, orange, green, blue, black, and white. The case itself isn’t anything special — it’s very similar to any number of other cases, including the Snap Case from Incase — but it’s perfect for the environmentally conscious iPhone owner.
