- What are the alternatives? – A lot of eco-friendly manufacturers have come up with alternatives for the plastic phone cases . Such eco-friendly cases are made of bamboo, ebony and other eco-friendly materials. Bamboo is the best choice when it comes to choosing an eco-friendly material to produce anything. Bamboo can grow really fast and can increase upto 3 inches in a matter of hours. Thus, harvesting bamboo is much easier than growing other trees which reach their full height only after 10-15 years and more. Bamboo is often used as a cash crop even and is the source of employment for many.
Besides bamboo, there are other alternatives available which are bio-degradable and are made of ebony, walnut and ash. These are available in some very trendy designs which beside being eco-friendly and stylish also protect your phone, not limiting itself but expanding to tablets, laptops as well. The covers are very durable and last for a good many years as well besides protecting your phones and cameras from wear and tear. The wood in these covers are also miles apart from the sleek plastic covers that exist today and thus provide better grip for the clumsy ones.
