This product contains material that can break down into soil in either a backyard or industrial composting system. These products are declared compostable by the manufacturer, but may not third-party certified. Contact your local waste-hauler or composting facility to determine where these materials may be accepted. Certain materials may be better fit for industrial facilities than backyard composting systems. Industrial facilities may not exist in your area.

Phthalate Free
Phthalates are found in toys, electronics, personal care products, plastic wraps, containers, and more. These petroleum based chemicals help soften plastics, and bind fragrances to perfumes, deodorants, creams, and other personal care products.

Love it

I use this all the time to watch video and make calls hands free. It's very practical and beautiful as well.

Love this case

In difference to the other review, I have noticed it is pretty snug on my phone at least as much as others. And I love love love that's it's compostable. Great product!

It's pretty cool. It is

It's pretty cool. It is not very snug on the phone, which means my toddler can easily remove it. (Good for developing his fine motor skills, I suppose.) I'm not sure exactly how to describe this next part, but there is a piece of the material (small, rectangular piece) that sticks out from the inside of the back. I think it is there to make the phone fit more snuggly, but it really just ensures that the phone doesn't lie flat on any surface when it's on its back. That's not a big deal to me, but maybe it is to you, the prospective buyer.

In any case, these small annoyances don't outweigh the environmental good the product does. So, I would for sure purchase it again.

Hey Scott - thank you for the review! So happy you're liking the phone case so far. :) All of us at EarthHero have Pela cases on our phones and haven't encountered the extra material issue that you're describing. We'll be in touch to learn more!
