Protect your iPhone with 4ocean Plastic


DESCRIPTION


After months of research and development, we’ve created a durable, stylish, and functional iPhone case made from actual ocean plastic that our captains and crews recovered! To give your iPhone maximum protection, we opted for a two-layer shell case. The hard outer shell is made from rHDPE 4ocean Plastic™ while the soft, impact-absorbent inner shell is made from bio-compostable PBAT rubber.

GreenCircle Certified, a third-party certification body, has verified that all of the plastic used to manufacture the hard outer shell case is made from ocean plastic recovered by 4ocean’s professional cleanup crews. Remember, every iPhone Case purchased comes with our One Pound Promise to pull a pound of trash from the ocean, rivers, and coastlines.

FEATURES

  • Every case purchased funds the removal of one pound of trash from the ocean, rivers, and coastlines
  • Designed to protect iPhone models SE 2020 / 8 / 7 / 6s / 6
  • Hard outer shell case made from 100% HDPE (high-density polyethylene) 4ocean Plastic™
  • Soft inner shell case made from bio-compostable PBAT rubber (polybutylene adipate terephthalate)

  • Inner case features the phrase “Together, we can end the ocean plastic crisis” and 1 pound symbol
  • The outer shell is GreenCircle Certified

Note: Unlike most cell phone cases made from synthetic plastic and rubber materials, the compostable material used to make the 4ocean iPhone case may require a short period of time to break-in so buttons can operate as normal.

CLOSED-LOOP PROGRAM

We’re currently developing a circular end-of-life plan for every 4ocean product. Our aim is to eliminate waste at the end of our product lifecycle by taking back 4ocean products that our customers no longer use so they can be properly recycled or transformed into new products. Once you’re done with your 4ocean product, please reach out to our customer service team to receive a prepaid shipping label.

The 4ocean Closed-Loop Program is only available in the U.S. for now, but we plan to expand in the future.

OCEAN FACT

Only 15% of e-waste is recycled properly. In the U.S., the average cell phone is used for just over two years before it’s replaced.

Damaged smartphones create more e-waste

Discarded smartphones are difficult or impossible to recycle

More than 1.5 billion smartphones are sold each year, which means approximately the same number of phones are discarded each year. Only 15% of e-waste is recycled properly; most e-waste is processed in countries where a lot of recycling is unregulated, which can release toxic chemicals and heavy metals into the environment.

For the most part, the rapid consumption of smartphones is part of a strategy called planned obsolescence. By making it difficult or impossible to repair or upgrade individual parts, manufacturers intentionally shorten the lifespan of their products and force consumers to replace the entire product instead of the part that’s malfunctioning (for example, a dead battery). In the U.S., consumers replace their smartphone approximately every two years.

While smartphones contain plastic parts, the issue of plastic consumption gets worse when you consider the products they upsell. For instance, most phone cases are made from plastic. Those that aren’t made from plastic are packaged in it. Product add ons like headphones and screen protectors are mostly made from and packaged in plastic as well, which only increases demand for plastic.

The sustainability marketplace is crowded with companies claiming that their products are made from “ocean bound” plastics or recycled ocean plastic. Unfortunately, many of those same companies are unable to trace the origins of the plastic they’re using back to the ocean itself. 4ocean is the only company that hires full-time captains and crews to recover marine debris directly from the ocean, rivers, and coastlines 7 days a week.

Since 2017, our professional cleanup crews have recovered millions of pounds of trash. 4ocean Upcycling is how we transform these recovered materials into new and innovative products that will continue to raise awareness about plastic pollution, fund our global ocean cleanup operation, and reduce the need for virgin plastics in the marketplace.

Our Signature iPhone Cases are the first of many future products that will be made from 4ocean Plastic™, the official name for the raw materials we create using the ocean plastic recovered by our professional cleanup crews.
