Upcycled rubber tire goods save your gadgets and the environment from damage. Benjamin Weinstein takes the most problematic sources of landfill waste and puts them to good use—waterproof, protective and ultra-durable phone and tablet cases.

The creator works closely with recycling centers to pick out discarded rubber tire inner tubes that are good for use. After thorough cleaning, the tire pieces are cut and sewn.

Though they may be a nightmare for recycling, tires are great upcycled materials because they are guaranteed to be strong and long-lasting. Weinstein cleverly turns frequently changed vehicle parts into an aesthetically pleasing statement phone case. Purchasing one of these will keep your smartphones and tablets safe while keeping the planet safe by lessening the burning of fossil fuels.
