Get fruity with one of Mezando’s magnificent Apple Watch bands. Made from pineapple leaves, they’re super-sustainable and available in a range of styles and color options.
They offer all the charm and durability of a leather strap, but without the obvious drawbacks.
Who knew pineapple leaves could be so pretty? Mezando did, so it used them to create a range of ethical Apple Watch bands ideal for vegetarians, vegans, and anyone else who wants an attractive strap.
Just like leather bands, Mezando’s are robust, weather-resistant, and supremely comfortable so you can wear them all day long. They also come in a range of finishes for every occassion.
The big difference is no animals were harmed in their making.
Mezando uses the miracle of Piñatex
Obviously Mezando didn’t just grab some pineapple leaves, paint them different colors, and add Apple Watch adapters. That would be crazy. Instead, the company uses something called Piñatex.
Piñatex is a material made from cellulose fibers extracted from pineapple leaves. It not only makes great bands, but it’s also great for the planet in a number of important ways.
First, it means fewer pineapple leaves — which are rarely put to good use — are burned. Even the left over biomass that isn’t used in Piñatex gets turned into fertilizer of biofuel, so it’s not put to waste.
In addition, Piñatex manufacturing requires no toxic chemicals, and it offers farming communities an additional source of revenue that simply wasn’t there before.
Pineapple leaves make for great Apple Watch bands
Pineapple bands are great for you, too. They’re supple and lightweight, so they feel great on your wrist, and they’re just as versatile as leather and other common materials.
You’re doing yourself and everyone else a favor when you buy a Mezando band, then. Which is why we’re delighted that the range is now available from the Cult of Mac Store.
