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.
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.
