90% Recycled iPod Case

Imoeba is Ethical & Stylish

— February 10, 2008 — Eco
Green can be very chic as proven by these gorgeous, earth-friendly iPod cases from Imoeba.

The Alpine range cases come in crisp white with a refreshing green trim, or in green with a white trim. Each consists of man-made bonded leather, a material made of leather scraps that is both durable and eco-friendly. They're available in custom fits for the third generation iPod Nano ($19.99) as well as the 80 GB and 160 GB iPod Classic ($24.99) and come with rotating belt clips, full access to screen and click-wheel. The case closes smoothly thanks to a magnet that holds on the flap.

"Our Alpine iPod cases are ideal for consumers wanting to make more green lifestyle choices," said CEO of Imoeba, Lawrence Leung. "The look, feel, quality and durability of the cases is as close to genuine leather as you can get, does not harm animal and are incredibly stylish. To top it all off, the packaging is made from 90% recycled and/or recyclable paper, making the Alpine case better for our planet overall."

Even the boxes they come in are earth friendly; the packaging is made from 90% recycled paper!

To top it off, Imoeba donates a portion of the proceeds to Earth 911 along with Earth911.com's "call to action" logo on the packaging.
