What is a compostable phone case?
A compostable phone case is a phone case that is made out of materials that can be safely composted. This means that the materials will break down into nutrients that can be used by plants, instead of sitting in a landfill.
We love phone cases made from sustainable or recycled materials, and with Skate4Create you get to customize your own case using sustainable or recycled materials.
They make sustainable phone cases out of upcycled 7ply Canadian maple skateboard decks. This is combined with a black polycarbonate bumper, which needs to be removed in order to compost the rest.
These compostable phone cases are for iPhones (XS Max, XR, XS, X, 12, 11 Pro Max, 8 Plus, 7 Plus, 13 Pro, 7, 8, 6s, 6, and SE) and Samsung phones (Galaxy S8, S8 Plus, S9, S9 Plus, S10, S10 Lite, S21 Plus, and S21 Ultra).
Even if you‘re not a skateboarder, you can appreciate the unique colors and patterns of the wood grain on these cases.
This effect is achieved by skateboard manufacturers dying each layer of wood a different color.
Eco phone covers from Reboxed are made with plant–based polymers and reclaimed wheat fibers, so they are 100% plastic-free and can be composted at home.
Though their cases feature a slim, soft–touch design that’s compatible with wireless charging, they assure that it will protect against the slipperiest of fingers.

About the brand Reboxed
They want to take a bite out of the 50 million tons of annual e–waste.
This “recommerce“ company doesn‘t just make compostable phone cases. They also sell refurbished iPhones, Samsungs, iPads, and Apple Watches and aim to recycle 100 million devices. If someone is wondering how to dispose of electronics, they can sell it to Reboxed to fund a new phone’s case.
They will get fair value for the actual working condition of their phone thanks to their TechCheck® app. Through it, they will fully inspect, diagnose, and put a price on their phone before they commit to anything.
If you buy a refurbished phone, it comes with a 12–month buyback guarantee, a free phone case to keep it safe, and five trees planted.
CASETiFY‘s compostable phone cases are made of ecotify™, a blend of plant–based biopolymers and starch, and a bamboo particle texture finish.
The compostable bags will need to break down in an industrial environment. If the user does not have access to one, they should send the bag back to the company for proper composting.
Speaking of sending back, their Re/CASETiFY cases are made of 65% recycled and plant–based materials from recycled phone cases. That means you can also recycle any old cell phone case through them.
They aim to use 100% recycled plastic by 2026.
These BPA and phthalate–free cases fit all iPhones 7 and newer, as well as all Samsung Galaxy models (S21, S21 FE, S21 Ultra, S21+, Note 20 Ultra, S20, S20 FE, S20 Ultra, S20+).
Each case comes with a drop distance rating, so the user can buy the right case for however buttery their fingers are.
The best part about these eco-friendly cases is the variety of colors and designs available (each printed with non-toxic ink).
At AGood Company, we pride ourselves on creating eco-friendly phone cases that are climate positive. We believe that it is our responsibility to do our part in preserving our planet, and our cases are just one small way that we can make a difference.
The compostable phone cases begin their journey at local organic linseed farms. Only farming byproducts are used.
This is all incredibly localized, with the cases made in Sweden in a factory that reuses all water and runs on solar and hydropower.
Each item is made entirely from plants, certified by the Vegan Society, and printed with water–based inks in beautiful patterns—some of which are created in collaboration with local artists.
These phone cases are 1.2mm thick, have a raised edge to protect your screen, and are available for the iPhone 6–13 and Samsung A20, A30, A50, S20, and S20 Plus.
At end–of–life, you can either compost these cases at home or recycle them via the A Good Loop program to get a new one in exchange.
Our eco friendly phone cases are made out of corn starch PLA and bamboo straw and will decompose over time.
This PBAT bioplastic is “biodegradable“ in the sense that it is broken down by microbes that metabolize all the carbon in the polymer.
In an industrial composter, they will take 90 days to fully biodegrade; however, in a home composter, it will take 12–24 months for them to decompose completely. This means that they are not able to be composted at home.
These cases have a subtle speckled pattern and a smooth matte texture with enough grip for people who have butter fingers. They are thin and fit in pockets without adding bulk, and they are compatible with wireless charging.
Wild Case is available for the following iPhones– 6, 7, 8, SE, XR, 11, 11 Pro, 12 Mini, 12 Pro, 12 Pro Max. It is also available for the Samsung Galaxy– S20, S20 Pro, S20 Ultra, S21, S21 Pro, S21 Ultra.
