Miniwiz iPhone case

Why not protect your iPhone from being trashed the eco-friendly way? The Re-Case iPhone case from Miniwiz is an iPhone case constructed entirely from trash. The company uses agricultural wastes from rice farming, added to post-consumer thermo-plastics, to create a group of materials that are molded into protective iPhone cases.

It’s no secret that post-consumer recycled plastics aren’t the most durable materials, but this reprocessed case is enhanced by the rice husk, creating a durable, architectural-grade material that is manufactured with minimal CO2 emissions, and can even be recycled at the end of its life.

Apparently the Re-Case style was inspired by a carrying case in Japan used for identity seals. Instead of identity seals, the Re-Case even has a space to slip in your Radio Frequency ID card used in offices for security purposes, so you won’t have to dig through your purse, pockets or wallets to find the credit card-sized tag every time you go to work.

The cases are priced around at $24.95 via Amazon, and comes in a variety of colors.
