If you think something that’s “compostable” must be easily “destructible,” well, that may be true of your coffee filters. But it’s not true of everything. Take Casetify’s Ultra Compostable iPhone Cases, for example.

These things are tough as hell. They’ll protect your iPhone as well as many other iPhone cases. And the ultimate beauty of them is, once you move on to another iPhone and discard the case, it won’t hurt the environment.

Casetify Ultra Compostable iPhone Cases

The Casetify Ultra Compostable iPhone Case is actually quite tough as well as being compostable. That means it will protect your iPhone and safely decompose after you discard it, without harming the environment.

First, let’s talk about the protection the case’s offer for your prized iPhone. Casetify’s Ultra Compostable Cases keep phones safe from a 6.6-foot drop — the same as many cases made from various synthetic materials. The compostable case’s raised edges protect screens from every angle. And the cases are compatible with wireless charging, too.

Next, let’s look at the case’s protection of the environment. Plenty of cases for handsets and other gadgets might hang around in a landfill for a long, long time after they’re thrown away. As they slowly decompose — very slowly — they might even leach chemicals into the ground and groundwater. But not these cases.

Made with “ecotify,” a proprietary blend of biopolymers, starch and bamboo, each compostable and biodegradable phone case breaks down into carbon dioxide, water and other naturally occurring minerals that seamlessly mix back into soils. The discarded case leave no toxins behind. None.

In addition, Casetify packaging is 100% eco-friendly. It’s compostable and made with recycled and recyclable materials. Even the print is eco-friendly, created from non-toxic soy ink made from soy beans. Unlike petroleum-based ink, it’s 100% recyclable.

Price: $40
