Before I get into the article, I want to let you know that this month in my Etsy shop 50% of your purchase will be donated to a charity of your choice! You can see my shop by clicking here.
Similar to fast fashion, the tech industry creates waste by encouraging people to buy the newest products every year. Keeping your phone as long as possible reduces the amount of electronic waste that we all contribute to, but you can also be more sustainable when you buy tech accessories!
These accessories are eco-friendly alternatives to other brands who don’t use sustainable manufacturing practices.
What Makes It Sustainable: Pela’s products are completely compostable and they donate 5% of their total sales to supporting environmental causes. Click here to see their products including, phone cases, Apple watch straps, and Airpods cases.
Bamboo USB Drive
What Makes It Sustainable: Rather than having a plastic shell, these USB drives are kept in a sustainable bamboo case. They’re handmade and also come with a one year warranty, if you want to purchase one you can find them here.
What Makes It Sustainable: The cases are made of premium recycled Washable paper which is a sustainable leather alternative, and the felt is made of recycled plastic bottles. If you’d like to see more colors and sizes you can find the cases here.
What Makes It Sustainable: Nimble uses a variety of sustainable materials such as recycled aluminum, hemp, and recycled plastic to make their chargers. They’re also a certified B corporation which means they’re dedicated to social and environmental responsibility. You can use my link for $10 off your purchase!
I hope you’ll keep these products in mind next time you’re buying electronic accessories, so that we can help prevent industry waste and worker exploitation. Thank you for reading, have a lovely day!
