When it comes to mobile device cases we often do not take much thought of where and how our cases are made, that’s expected to change as environmentally friendly phone cases become everyone’s must have accessory for their mobile device.
There are an estimated 5 billion mobile phone users in the world with the average user keeping their phone for just 22 months, which means a large number of phone cases end up in landfill sites, bins or even in the ocean – all contaminating the environment.
With everyone now increasingly more environmentally conscious, influenced by how each of our actions impact the world, mobile device users are shifting away from cheap throwaway cases to more robust, ethically produced and eco-friendly phone cases.
