Eco-friendly smartphone cases are becoming increasingly popular among corporations worldwide. Like the iPhone 12 cases, these protect your phone when you need it most. This makes these cases even better because when you discard them, they don't harm the environment. Many of these cases are made from recycled plastic and plant-based materials that are biodegradable.
Eco cases may differ from traditional thermoplastic polyurethane or TPU cases, but some people would even realize that you were using an eco-friendly case unless you said it. Many of the cases on this list are compatible with wireless chargers.
Moreover, it's important to note that many of these cases are available for earlier models, including the and, and many of them are discounted.

The Torro Eco Cover for iPhone 12 and 12 Pro is made from renewable plant-based materials such as corn and cassava; no plastic is used, but it feels like a thick plastic case; it also has increased edges to protect your screen in the event your phone falls. This case was previously on sale for $10, but it remains a good deal.
It's also available for the, but I didn't see a list for a version for the.
You know, do you ever see these compact discs from Nimble? These are a fraction of the price of $40, but some people prefer the idea of protecting the latest technology with recycled technology. They are also effective in reducing exposure to antimicrobial radiation and aren't expected to fade over time. Use code CNET25 for 25% off any Disc Case, bringing the price down to $30.
Organicore cases, like the Torro case, are made with 100% compostable and biodegradable materials and are also available in eco-friendly packaging. Organicore cases are available in three colors: black, natural, and eucalyptus. The Torro's main advantage is that it comes in brighter shades, including the red and blue do pop.
Note that Amazon is lowering certain colors of the Organicore case (the black version is a little more than $18), but the green version shown is $21. Besides, the Organicore is available in a, but it costs more.
Casetify has recently introduced its new Ultra Compostable Cases, which have surpassed its previous Conscious cases. The new eco model is made with Ecotify, a 100% compostable plant-based material, which has a proprietary blend of biopolymers, starch, and bamboo grain.
Casetify claims that the packaging is made from 100% recycled, compostable materials, including eco-friendly, non-toxic ink made from soybeans. The case has a raised edge design to protect the screens and is available in seven color options. The price is $50, but the case is customizable with personalization and prints.
The only case on the list I haven't yet tried is this, but Amazon users say it's positive and it costs only $9. Eplantita claims its case is made of 100% biodegradable wheat straw and recyclable TPU. It fully covers your phone and has raised edges, so that should assist with face-down drops. It's available in several colors.
Lifeproof's Wake case is made out of recycled ocean plastic (85% of it anyway). It is attractively designed but I wouldn't call it super tough because it isn't secured at the bottom, and it features 6-foot drop protection. It comes in four colors, including this teal version, which I like best. However, the purple case is only selling for $16 on Amazon.
The natural cork cases from Sweden aren't quite as appealing as the US, but the similarly styled Woodpeckery cork cases cost a lot less. Note these are small cases that aren't incredibly protective if you drop them (other cases offer greater corner protection). Also, the bottom of the case covers half of your phone's bottom rather than leaving it completely exposed.
The iPhone 12 Mini and Max versions of the case can only be purchased on Amazon. For the time being, the iPhone 12/12 Pro version will be released, but they may be purchased online.
KerfCase's new Plywood case isn't only more durable, but less expensive than others, starting at $50, with a 6-foot drop protection and a limited lifetime repair warranty. I like it better than other Apple MagSafe chargers, and KerfCase sells matching charging docks for the Apple MagSafe charger (yes, it's an accessory for an accessory).
