CARDBORED CASE

Location: Brooklyn, NY

Completion: January, 2016

brief

It all started with a problem: design with zero cost. Inspired by technology and green design, CardBORED Case was imagined by looking at the way we interacted with our iPhones and asking the question, why not cardboard? 

 

Over 85% of all products that are sold in the U.S. today are packaged in cardboard. We thought, if we were to somehow reuse this material, then for every 2 tons we reuse we could save 93 yards of landfill space! Designing a zero cost product was an opportunity to make a subtle change in the way we recycle. Our generation has been acclaimed the consumer generation; unaware of the consequences our negligence will take us. We have produced more waste in the past 10 years than the entire 20th century combined.

approach

This is more than just your next accessory. The CardBORED Case is the first ever iPhone case made of 100% recycled cardboard and is 100% biodegradable. Made with cardboard found in the local area, it is the greenest iPhone case available! Engineered and manufactured in Indiana (we don't just grow corn here).

durable?

It's cardboard! Over 85% of all products that are sold in the U.S. today are packaged in cardboard. We choose from only the strongest 1/8 inch recycled corrugated cardboard. There is a reason we trust shipping companies with this material because it is strong, lightweight and handles journeys across the world!

In addition, we layer each side with recycled paper using an eco friendly, water soluble adhesive to make it that much more durable!
