The last few years have seen an incredible amount of innovation when it comes to electronics accessories, and a lot of that novel design has manifested in the form of eco-friendly products. Now that the iPad
has sold nearly 10 million devices, it’s time that we accessorize and
protect this technological wonder in a stylish yet environmentally
friendly way. Read on for our top 10 eco-friendly ipad cases!
1. Vers Shellcase
Vers is an electronics accessories company that has pioneered the eco-friendly case space for years. Now, they’ve done it again with their bamboo shell iPad case, which not only protects your device, but also enhances it with an attached metal foot that lifts up for easy viewing.
2. Marware Eco-Flip iPad Case
Marware‘s eco-flip iPad case is a sleek design that opens at the top so that the lid can be used as a vertical stand – a nice trick, especially for reading. The eco-leather used to make the case has fewer toxins than traditional leather and is RoHS compliant, which restricts the use of hazardous substances in leathers.
3. The ECONUT
The ECONUT is a fold out case for the iPad that features a working keyboard. Equally as cool as the concept is the material – it’s made from a coconut tree, so it’s environmentally safe and biodegradable. The ECONUT isn’t on the market just yet, but we hear it will be coming to an online store in the near future.
4. SUBSTRATA iPad Case
Substrata created this beautiful iPad case made from sustainably-harvested recycled wood. The key advantage to the Substrata case is the hard shell that allows you to easily prop up the iPad at different angles. They also use recycled packaging materials for shipping, and $3 of every purchase goes to support humanitarian and reforestation efforts in the areas of the world where they source their materials.
5. Proporta Leather Case for iPad
These chic iPad cases from Proporta are made from 100% recycled leather with a natural hessian lining. Each case doubles as a stand, and the Proporta’s two-tone color scheme is downright snappy!
