Our oceans are in crisis and single-use plastics are a large contributor. There is no arguing that plastics are convient and easy to use, but at what cost? More and more products are available that offer convenience at a lower cost.
How We Can Help
Pela’s flagship phone case is made of Flaxstic®, a unique blend of plant-based biopolymer mixed with flax shive, an annually renewable waste byproduct of the flax oilseed harvest in Canada.
It completely breaks down into carbon, water, and organic biomass. Meaning that you can put it into the compost when you’re finished with it.
This is not just empty promises! Pela has the data and testing to back this up. Below you can see 5 Pela Cases almost fully composted after JUST 3 weeks in a commercial composter. Regular cardboard – brown stuff in the other hand doesn’t even decompose as fast as these phone cases do!
Your case is just part of the protection. Most parents also use a screen protector. Pela has a sustainable solution for that as well.
Pela Canopy is a screen protector that you pour on! The liquid hardens on any phone screen and increases its strength by 10x!! It protects your phone against scratches, shattering and impacts.
It comes in a glass vial that’s corked instead of excessive plastic packaging.(You can re-use the vial for all sorts of things). One vial of Canopy will give you enough liquid to protect 3 phones.
Canopy is just one more way that Pela is using innovative new materials to lead the world to a waste free future.
Pela also develops other products made of environmentally sensible materials that educate and inspire a global community of people who are committed to making a positive impact on our planet. Check out their sunglasses with biodegradable frames. To make it even better you can send them back to Pela when you’re done with them.
Pela’s new product, Ethos, is tackling cell phone radiation exposure with a sustainable answer. Ethos is equipped with Penumbra Brands’ patented alara technology™ to reduce your exposure to cell phone radiation up to 80 percent or more while maintaining the phone’s signal quality.
Ethos is embedded with custom-designed, micro-thin alara antennas that automatically pair with your phone to dramatically reduce exposure to cell phone radiofrequency (RF) radiation. Instead of shielding or blocking RF, Ethos antennas are engineered to resonate at the cell phone’s specific RF,
attracting the phone signal toward the Ethos antenna and redirecting it away from the user. This makes it possible to provide protection while keeping a strong signal.
Ethos comes as a recyclable insert that goes directly inside your Pela case and is currently available for iPhone 11, 11Pro, XR and 8. Keep you and your children safe and healthy by staying connected while significantly reducing exposure to EMFs using Ethos.
A product is only as good as the guarantee
If your screen cracks while wearing a Pela Case AND Canopy liquid screen protector, they will pay for the repairs.
