Five Favorite Etsy Stores- Eco-Friendly Phone Cases

by - Sunday, September 04, 2016

I want to keep highlighting amazing makers in the US, and I feel like my Etsy links can get caught in the more mainstream shuffle. So starting a series to focus on the greatest stuff we have found.

I don't have an i Phone, so my biggest concern is just finding ANY cover that fits my Windows Phone, but one of the weird perks of an iPhone is you have millions of choices for covers. Within these many, many choices are some that are both Made in America and environmentally-conscientious. It can be easy to just pick whatever is at the store, but most of these are plastic, and they don't do much good. I tracked down some better options on Etsy.

recycled skateboard phone covers from carved products
from Carved Products
Carved Products sells phone covers made of recycled skateboards. They look really cool, and I just think this is a great use of materials that might just be discarded otherwise. Plus, there is something sweet about a grown man carrying his fancy phone in a skateboard. It's ok, buddy, you are still hip.

from I Make the Case
I Make the Case has a HUGE selection of bamboo cases that are more eco friendly than plastic, Also great because they last a long time. The longer one case lasts, the fewer cases you send to the landfill, so picking one with a great reputation makes a lot of sense.

Wrecords by Monkey sells a recycled record phone case. These also look really graphic and sharp. Such a cool choice, and it might make a great gift!

Wild Weka Designs makes all kinds of everyday household objects (I like their make up brush rolls) out of discarded fabric, saving it from a landfill. They also sell cute little pockets for iPhones. I have never used a pocket cover like this, but if one is your thing, this one helps the Earth AND looks good!

The Eco Owl is based out of Ireland, but I wanted to highlight them anyway, because they do sell eco-friendly phone cases with a lot of beauty and style. Another one that looks really chic and functional to me, which is really the goal, right? Finding environmentally-friendly stuff that people would want even if it wasn't eco-friendly!
