BioCase is made of PBAT, a biodegradable thermoplastic, PLA, a compostable corn-based bioplastic and bamboo fibbers. BioCase is 100% plastic free and its materials are 100% biodegradable.
BioCase is the world's first environmentally friendly phone case and it’s SKECH’s first step on our mission to reduce our environmental footprint and achieve zero waste-to-landfill status by 2023. BioCase is composed of 100% compostable materials, is 100% plastic free, and its packaging is made from 100% recycled paper. If that’s not eco-friendly, then we don’t know what is :)
The specks are bamboo fibers broken down in the manufacturing process, but we like to call them eco-beauty marks.
BioCase is five (5) feet drop tested and is built to withstand small drops, bangs, and falls. Without further testing, it can’t be considered an impact case, but you can be sure it meets SKECH’s high protection standards.
BioCase can withstand everyday wear and tear and is five (5) feet drop tested. Because it’s not a certified impact case, it’s best to minimize big drops and falls.
BioCase is around 2mm thick. Its slim fit and sleek design keep the extra bulk to a minimum.
We encourage you to! BioCase has raised rim screen protection, but we highly recommend adding a screen guard for further protection. BioCase is designed to seamlessly match SKECH’s screen protector, but other protectors work too.
We like to think that BioCase isn’t just eco-friendly. With an earthy and grainy-but-smooth finish, it feels eco-friendly too.
We expected this question :) BioCase only decomposes in compost environments so as long as you’re not composting in your bag or pocket, you have nothing to worry about!
BioCase is durable: wipe it dry and it’ll be good as new.
Yes! BioCase is completely free from BPA, lead, cadmium, and phthalates. They’re safe for you and for the planet.
In general, in a home compost environment 90% of the materials should decompose within 12 months while in an industrial compost environment 90% of the materials should decompose within 6 months. The exact time, however, varies because every compost environment - bacteria, temperature, moisture - is different.
All the materials in BioCase are 100% biodegradable, but until the final product finishes being tested, we can’t officially certify the case as fully biodegradable or suitable for home compost. Once the certification process is complete, we’ll publish full disposal instructions. Until then, you can ship your BioCase back to us when you’re finished with it and we’ll take care of the rest. Send us your tracking code and you’ll receive a $10 coupon from SKECH.
BioCase is made to only decompose in a compost environment. We’re trying to limit our waste-to-landfill impact so please don’t throw it in the trash. If you’re unable to compost on your own, ship your BioCase back to us when you’re finished with it and we’ll take care of the rest. You can even send us your tracking code and you’ll receive a $10 coupon from SKECH.
There are other phone cases on the market made of natural materials like cork, wood or rubber, but we’re confident that BioCase is the world’s most environmentally friendly.
BioCases are designed in Tel Aviv and manufactured in China.
