Pela Case – The Wold’s First Compostable Phone Case

While on a family vacation in Kauai in 2010, Jeremy Lang, the founder, and CEO of Pela Case saw first hand the damage plastic was doing to our oceans.  Jeremy spent years experimenting with new materials to try and find an alternative to plastic that could be used for everyday products. He came up with a 100% compostable sustainable, eco-friendly material free of BPA, lead, cadmium, and phthalates.

The Pela Phone Case has the potential to replace the more than 1 Billion plastic phone cases sold every year around the globe while returning back to the earth gracefully when you’re done with it.  All you have to do is throw it into a back yard compost and it will biodegrade!


Pela Sunglasses are sustainably made eco-friendly sunglasses.  The frames are biodegradable and you can even send them back to Pela Case when you’re done with them.  Are these sunglasses perfectly zero-waste? No, but they’re better than most and with the PELA 360 offer, you can send back your Pela cases and sunglasses to Pela and they will clean them up and give them to someone in need, turn them into new products, or compost them through the Pela 360 program.
