If you’re looking for an eco-friendly case for your iPad 2, look no further.
The Bionic iPad 2 Case from Seattle-based manufacturer Brenthaven will give you the durability and sustainability you’re looking for. The design is so chic and functional, you’d never guess it’s made from recycled plastic bottles.
The case is the first of its kind to be created with cutting-edge Bionic Yarn material – a multi-functional fabric created by weaving recycled polyester with alternate fibers, usually nylon, Lycra or cotton.
“We’ve been searching for a way to use recycled materials in our products without compromising the durability and lifetime guarantee our customers expect,” said Scott Armstrong, CEO of Brenthaven. “Bionic Yarn is the perfect fit for us because it is made using recycled water bottles but is also extremely durable.”
Recycled polyester fabrics are made by chopping bottles into flakes, melting them down and forming them into two-inch fibers.
Recycled fiber is spun together with high-tenacity polyester to form the base of the yarn.
To create maximum durability, the base is then covered with two filament layers of an alternate fiber – which are woven in opposite directions to create the same interlocking effect as a Chinese finger trap.
The lifetime guarantee offered with this sturdy case ensures that it will never end up in a landfill before its time. And the innovative weaving technique makes each case super-resistant to rips, tears and heat damage. So, you’ll never even want to throw it out!
But this case isn’t all about green. It’s also designed for the most convenient use of your iPad 2. The folio design provides full coverage, while allowing multiple viewing angles and easy typing.
These cases (available in multiple colors for $59.95 each) may fly off the shelves. But you can ditch the lines at your local electronics store by pre-ordering your case online. Orders received over the next two weeks should ship by mid-September, according to the company.
