Eco friendly mobile phone cases are the best and most stylish way to protect your mobile phone from spills, scratches and the occasional accidental drop from the side of a table.
We’ve curated three of the best cases we’re sure you’ll love too.
Back in 2011, the UK-based Anokimobi Ltd signed a deal with accessories distributor Elite Mobile to sell its eco-friendly mobile phone pouch and case range. Ten years later in 2021, the talented design house still has a range of eco friendly mobile phone cases that are actually biodegradable!
Samsung S7, Samsung S7 Edge and Samsung Galaxy
iPhone 4/4s, iPhone 5/5s, iPhone 6(S) and 6(S)+
The model range available seems to be a bit on the old side, but we know you like to keep your older phones around longer to help save the planet.
Anokimobi can print the design of your choice onto a customised case, with a choice of 1, 2, 3 or full colour print designs. All cases in their Ecoskins range are made from recycled plastic bottles and degrade at a rate of 10% per year in landfill.
Currently, Anokimobi only offer cases in bulk quantities and there doesn’t seem to be support for more modern smartphones. But if you get in contact with their sales team, I’m sure you could arrange something together.
Eco friendly Organic Real COFFEE Phone Case
Based in Ljubljana, Slovenia, MMOREcases design and make unique phone cases that actually smell like natural products. If you buy their coffee phone case, you’ll actually get a whiff of coffee every time you pull out your phone to read your notifications.
Organic, 100% recyclable and planting a tree with every purchase, MMOREcases are a truly green company, not just a company that makes environmentally friendly products. They use Shopify because of the steps the ecommerce giant has taken to be carbon neutral. MMOREcases also look to use natural materials, and reduce the waste they produce as a business.
“When you order a case from MMORE cases, you can rest easy knowing your packaging (and also a wooden phone case if you ordered one) is coming from a source that has been certified by FSC through their rigorous chain of custody.” – MMOREcases sustainability page.

Bioseries have come up with a range of eco-friendly cases for the iPhone 4. Boasting a bioplastics technology which lowers green house gas emissions during production, in a marketplace full of plastic products produced using petrochemicals; the company is hoping that they have secured a niche for them selves with this Ingeo and bio-based components 12gm offering.
Customers can operate the handset with out any problems and with ease of access; it’s designer protective cover that offers strength, style and sturdiness. This kind of green protective comes in orange, (my personal favourite) red, white, lush green, forest green and black and at £25 that’s not a bad price for a green peace of mind.
