Buy 1 Pela Case + Return Your Old Plastic Case = Stop 1 pound of plastic from entering our landfills and oceans.
1.5 billion phone cases are thrown away each year. That’s a lot of plastic waste.
It goes without saying that we want to protect our cell phone from scratches, wear and tear and the dreaded drop. But, what do we do with old phone cases when we upgrade our device?
The question of how to recycle phone cases is a hot topic, considering less than 5% of all plastic gets recycled and the rest ends up in landfills. It can take up to 1000 years for plastic to break down, but that doesn’t mean it’s gone forever. Plastic breaks down into micro-plastics that end up floating in the ocean.
Introducing Pela 360
We take responsibility for our Pela products throughout their entire life cycle. And now we will even find a graceful end of life for your conventional plastic case by either upcycling it into a new Pela product, or making sure it gets recycled properly.
We're making it simple
Help us close the loop and move toward a more sustainable circular economy by following these four easy steps below:
Your new Pela case comes with an extra envelope to send us your old Pela case or conventional plastic case.
Put your old phone case into the Tradesies envelope. Put a stamp on it and drop it in the mail.
Your old Pela case will be upcycled into a new Pela product or turned into compost. If you send us a conventional plastic case, it will either be upcycled into a new Pela product or properly recycled.
