Cell phone cases from compostable, starch-based plastics


You only use your phone for a year or two. Why should your case last a lifetime? We made the market’s first soft-plastic, compostable cell phone case. It is strong, pliable and durable with an exquisitely soft touch. The elastomeric material provides a snug fit around the phone, so you know it will be safe from everyday wear and tear. Our starch-based plastics are also ideal for printing.

The best part is that this compostable cell phone case can be returned to nature when its useful life has ended.

Plastics are useful and ubiquitous. But just how much are traditional formulations costing us?
