The Age Of Sustainability: Bodyguardz Takes New Approach With Mobile Cases
It’s baffling that the majority of mobile phone users will happily shell out the price of a second-hand car for the latest and greatest smartphone, only to scrimp on the protective shell that acts as the only line of defence between your device and the terracotta tiles it just smashed into.
Worst still, most people don’t even think about their phone case past the aesthetics; usually — at least in Australia — selecting either a clear, black, or white case, and picking a price point that doesn’t seem too outrageous.
After all, it’s a bit of plastic, they argue, what does it really matter?
Luckily, Bodyguardz put an incredible amount of thought into its phone cases. Aside from the sturdy build, and slick design, they think about how the materials they use will both protect your valuable access, and protect the environment long after you’ve moved onto the latest gadget and tossed your case along with it. Even the packaging the cases come in is plant-based, and fully recyclable.
“We recognise our responsibility to both customers, as well as the environment,” Bodyguardz explain. “Integrity, quality, and innovation are the three core values that anchor everything we do. Rooted in these values is our approach to sustainability, centered around authenticity and transparency.”
Types of sustainability
This regard for the environment comes early in the process. Bodyguardz use a low temperature curing process which uses four times less energy than competitor brands. “Creating sustainable products
and materials takes innovation and forward thinking,” Bodyguardz explain. “We are leading the future of the industry.”
The company also partners with Repreve to use 100 per cent recycled ocean plastic in its products.
Just by implementing these steps in the company’s production and distribution chain will save the equivalent of the square footage of 18 football fields every single year – and that’s for the eco-friendly shatterproof screen protector alone.
That’s an outstanding amount of waste involved in other phone cases – especially considering the disposal nature of such products once they outlast their usefulness.
