When it comes to mobile phone cases we often do not take much thought of where and how our cases are made, that is expected to change in 2019 as environmentally friendly phone cases become everyone’s must have phone accessory.
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, 2019 is expected to be the year phone users shift from cheap throwaway cases, which are piling up around the world, to more robust, ethically produced and eco-friendly phone cases.
We have a small collection of the best environmentally friendly cases available for iphone and android devices today.
