Hello, Snow Happy community!! One of things we care about here at Snow Happy is protecting this great Earth that provides for our daily adventures. And, one of the ways we do this is by using as little single-use plastic items as possible, like packing zero waste lunches when we are on the go. Recently, I got a new phone and the amount packaging was shocking (think those kids’ toys at Christmas levels of packaging), which held a non-recyclable plastic phone case.
You know how some days those things just sit with you? It was one of those days and I was really disturbed by it, so, I went to the depths of the internet to see if there existed a more sustainable option. There was! Enter, Pela Case, the compostable phone case! I ordered one on the double.
Pela Case offers a great range of colors for a variety of phones and they support some really awesome causes by partnering with various organizations and featuring artwork on limited addition cases. Five percent of their total sales is donated directly to their causes.
The cases are made of Flaxstic®, which, according to their website, “is comprised of compostable bioplastic elastomer and flax straw materials,” and are suitable for both industrial and home composting.
Much to my happiness, my brand new Pela Case arrived quickly and in minimal compostable packaging with a lovely note. The case has a nice soft feel, is low-profile and is really flexible for easy on and off. They have a great variety of colors and artwork for iphone, Samsung and Google products. I am been using my Pela Case for going on 5 months now and it’s holding up great! I would definitely purchase another case from Pela.
In addition to their phone cases, they also offer a liquid glass screen protector kit and sunglasses! I will definitely be trying the screen protector when mine is ready to be replaced. The super stylish and on-trend sunglasses are made from 100% biodegradable acetate, which comes from plants and they do closed loop manufacturing (meaning they take their product back then upcycle it to reduce waste). So cool!!! And sustainable. And on my list of wants!
The cherry on top of this awesome and environmentally friendly brand is that the all around ordering experience was so easy and friendly! Keep an eye on this company to see what they come up with next! (Oh, and they are having a 25% off sale right now!
