As 2019 is drawing to an end, it’s pretty clear that one of the biggest trends of the year is climate change. For Black Friday this year, we’re highlighting some of the best eco-friendly mobile phone accessory options on the market so you can hit the sales and still reduce your ecological footprint.
With phones costing upwards of $1000 these days, it’s only natural to want to protect them. Rather than investing in wasteful plastic or rubber, though, there is a more eco-friendly solution: Compostable phone cases and zero-waste screen protectors. Pela Case is a company that offers just that. And as a bonus, 5% of their total sales are donated directly to their various partners – like Save the Whales and Surfrider Foundation.
This Black Friday, Pela Case is also offering up to 50% off site-wide!
Made in Barcelona, Popsicase phone cases are made from a combination of abandoned fishing nets and scrap aluminum collected from the Mediterranean Sea. Not only are they made of recycled materials, but they are 100% recyclable after use, and cases start for as low as $28. Aside from their eco-friendly features, Popsicase phone cases have a built-in handle (hence the name) that allows customers to take better quality photos when holding the phone with only one hand!
The House of Marley helps support global reforestation by contributing to the One Tree Planted non-profit organization, and as of June 2019 they’re contributed to the planting of 191,000 trees. With headphones ranging from $14.99 to $249.99, you can get something for everyone on your list this year, and maybe a little something extra for yourself. All materials used to make House of Marley products are sustainably sourced so you can feel good about your purchase.

If you’re looking for a new phone charger, look no further! Not only can the Nimble Wireless Dual Pad charge 2 phones simultaneously, but it’s also on sale this Black Friday. Shipped in 100% plastic-free packaging and made with eco-friendly materials like recycled water bottles and plant-based bio-plastics, you’ll feel good about buying from Nimble this season.
Oh, and don’t forget that with every Nimble purchase you’ll receive a disposable pouch that can be used to send old or unused electronic devices to Nimble’s recycling partner to be responsibly disposed of, for no extra cost!
TextNow offers gently used and refurbished phones year-round, but for Black Friday this year you can snag a good-as-new phone for as low as $14.99. Earlier this year, we outlined the benefits of going green, and what simple steps can be taken to help reduce your ecological footprint. So let’s minimize the amount of electronic waste that is disposed of this year by reusing mobile devices wherever we can.
