Pela Eco-friendly and Sustainable iPhone and Android Cases
Pela was founded in 2011 by environmental consultant, Jeremy Lang after a family vacation to Hawaii. He was shocked to see the level of plastic pollution that was washed up on the shores and decided to come up with a solution. After much research, trial and error, Lang created a material called Flaxstic®, a unique blend of plant-based biopolymer mixed with flax shive, an annually renewable waste byproduct of the flax oilseed harvest in Canada. The result? Android and iPhone cases that completely breaks down into carbon, water, and organic biomass. This is part of a broader mission set forth by BC-based Pela, who also sell sunglasses and accessories 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.
