Incipio, one of the largest smartphone case makers on the planet, is backing the plant-based plastics with its slim new iPhone 11 cases made out of Organicore, a 100% compostable material that can decompose in a compost pile in just six months.
Along with being environmentally friendly, the case is tested to protect drops of up to six feet. Its raised bezel adds a bit of screen protection but it’s also thin enough to still support wireless charging. It comes in four color options: black, green, gray and white.
Protecting the planet and iPhones at the same time
Compostable iPhone cases have been a niche product for a few years. Incipio joining the market could actually make them a mainstream thing. Incipio even made sure 100% of the packaging is recyclable and used eco-friendly water-based ink.
“As a global leader in device protection, we recognized a need to bring eco-conscious solutions with proven protection to the category,” said Incipio CEO Brian Stech. “By introducing 100% compostable slim and protective cases to the market, we are able to provide consumers with a wide range of solutions that better serve the planet and our future — so everyone can do their part.”
The Organicore cases are currently only available for the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max with pricing set at $39.99. More Organicore cases for other smartphones, AirPods and AirPods Pro will be coming out later this year.
