Pela iPhone Case

​​These cases are biodegradable and compostable. I have been using them for years, and I always feel good that when I get a new phone I'm not just throwing my case away and creating more waste. Pela is also a climate neutral company who operates with sustainability in mind—they donate at least 1% of their profits to non-profit environmental organizations. Plus, the cases are really cute and durable (I am notorious for dropping my phones and these cases have always stood up to the challenge). -Kelly Chiello, Visuals Editor,
