Pela Case

Less waste, one case at a time

Who They Are

Inspired when his son, Cole, dug up plastic on a Hawaiian beach, founder Jeremy Lang began asking questions about the impact of plastic on our planet. This led to his creation of Pela’s innovative phone cases, made with a toxin free-plant based material called Flaxstic. Lang understands that sustainability is a movement, and strives towards constant improvement in leading Pela towards an even more eco-friendly future! His goal is to reduce our heavy dependence on plastic by providing a creative alternative for an everyday item. Pela’s simple, beautiful phone cases are making sustainable an attractive option in a plastic-filled world.

Plant Based Resins are used as an alternative to fully-synthetic plastics. Instead of using Petroleum as the main base ingredient to form plastic, some companies have started replacing a portion of the ingredients with plant and vegetable extracts. This lowers the amount of resources extracted to create purely synthetic products, and often provides a use for agricultural byproducts such as corn or flax. Some plant based resins are made from 100% plant materials, and can be composted in industrial facilities. EarthHero recommends checking with your local compost facility to determine which items are safe to compost.
