With phone users constantly changing both handsets and cases, a large number of phone cases end up at the land-fill or in the sea. Unfortunately not all cases are bio-degradable and as a result manufacturers are now offering smartphone users the choice to opt for eco-friendly cases.
With that said, it’s still important to keep your iPhone 12 Series handset (iphone 12, 12 mini, 12 Pro & 12 Pro Max) protected and looking stylish and you can still achieve this with an eco friendly case to help out the enivronment!
To help you choose the right case, we’ve tested number of new eco-friendly cases to the market.
1. UAG Outback Biodegradable iPhone Case – Olive
The UAG Outback case is made from 100% biodegradable materials and so 100% compostable. UAG have gone one step further to ensure packaging is fully recylable too by using soy-based inks, zero plastic and the minimal use of non-toxic adhesives.
In terms of protection, you can expect the usual levels of protection from any UAG case including both excellent scratch and shock protection, which is proven through exceeding military drop tests. The front of the case also has a raised edge to provide additional protection to any of the iPhone 12 series displays.
Overall the UAG Outback iPhone 12 Series Biodegradale case is sleek, thin yet protective. Additionally this case is compatible with MagSafe charging and is available for the entire iPhone 12 Series range.
2. Incipio Organicore iPhone Case – Eucalyptus
As the name suggests, Incipio’s Organicore collection has been improved and made from plants, meaning it is 100% compostable and so can break down completely when in the correct enviornment. Additionally to further help the environment, Incipio plant a tree for every Organicore case sold.
When it comes to safeguarding your iPhone 12 series handset, this Organicore case provides 8ft drop protection and features Incipio’s impact strut protection which reduces impact force when dropped. The case itself is form fitted to ensure a perfect fit, whilst being compatible with MagSafe charging.
As there are currently limited eco-friendly cases available for the iPhone 12 Series, we’ll be testing and adding to this list when more become available.
