Green-Up Your Device Protection

Let's face it: There are plenty of good protective cases available for your iPad or iPhone, but most companies give little or no regards to the manufacturing process, or the materials they choose for their cases. Let's change that and support products that create socially responsible gear to protect our devices.

HandMade Bamboo Case For iPad2
This $99 case is handcrafted from bamboo, that, not only is durable and attractive, but it has lots of personality. Each case arrives wrapped in a burlap bag, and includes an individualized, hand numbered certificate. Felt lining inside the case cushions your iPad while a leather strap will keep your iPad from sliding out.

Kork iPad Case
The Eco-Friendly Kork Case is made from 100% recycled cork and has an sculpted design that holds the iPad firmly in place. There is no screen protection but it feels very comfortable when you hold it in your hands. The case is practically weightless and has all the openings for all the ports and buttons.

Upcycled Wetsuit iPad Sleeve
This case is made from scrap material used for wetsuits. The cushy nylon neoprene, protects the gear from small bumps and falls while still keeping a slim profile. The extra front pocket is ideal for coins, few bills and even some cards/IDs.
