Pela 360

Buy 1 Pela Case + Return Your Old Plastic Case = Stop 1 pound of plastic from entering our landfills and oceans.

Did you know?

1.5 billion phone cases are thrown away each year. That’s a lot of plastic waste.

Less than 5% of all plastic gets recycled. The rest ends up in landfills. It can take up to 1000 years for plastic to break down, but that doesn’t mean it’s gone forever. Plastic breaks down into micro-plastics that end up floating in the ocean.

Biobased, biodegradable and compostable materials break down once they no longer serve a purpose. But, not everyone has a home compost and not all industrial compost facilities accept these materials.

The solution?

Introducing Pela 360 and the Responsible Economy™

We take responsibility for our Pela products throughout their entire life cycle. And now we will even find a graceful end of life for your conventional plastic case by either upcycling it into a new Pela product, or making sure it gets recycled properly.

We're making it simple

Help us close the loop and move toward a more sustainable circular economy by following these four easy steps below:

Step one
Order your Pela case
Choose Your Model
Step two
Your new Pela case comes with an extra envelope to send us your old Pela case or conventional plastic case.
Step three
Put your old phone case into the Tradesies envelope. Put a stamp on it and drop it in the mail.
Step four
Your old Pela case will be upcycled into a new Pela product or turned into compost. If you send us a conventional plastic case, it will either be upcycled into a new Pela product or properly recycled.
