How it Feels
Pela Grip loops securely around your finger to hold your phone in place—perfect for all your adventures. Outside of being able to protect your phone, the next most important thing is how a case feels in your hands!
Protect Your Phone and the Planet.
How it Ships
While the company prides itself on FREE shipping in Canada and USA and very cheap shipping to most of the planet, what they really stand for is minimal packaging. Every product that ships out goes out in the minimum amount of packaging required to get the items to their destination safely and securely. No more, no less.
The Pela Case is made of Flaxstic®, which is comprised of compostable bioplastic elastomer and flax straw materials. This material has been tested to be safe and free of phthalates, BPA, cadmium and lead and is verified to meet child safety standards in the U.S., Canada, Europe, Australia and New Zealand. The base material meets U.S. (ASTM D6400-04) and E.U. (EN 13432) standards for composting in an industrial composting facility and has a lower carbon footprint and lower greenhouse gas emissions than traditional plastic. It can also be left to biodegrade in a home composting environment.
Story & Mission
The goal of the company is big and hairy audacious – creation of a waste free future.
They believe that the technology exists to make BHAG a reality, it just takes the right company with the right community to make these products the new normal.
This is why the products are being developed of environmentally sensible materials. To educate and inspire the global community of people who are committed to making a positive impact on our planet.
Everyday Products Without Everyday Waste.
This all started with Jeremy Lang, founder. He saw first hand the damage plastic was doing to our oceans while on family vacation in Hawaii in 2008. Jeremy had the courage to spend years experimenting with new materials to try and find an alternative to plastic that could be used in everyday products.
“I started Pela when my son Cole dug up some plastic on the beach in Hawaii and I started wondering about the impact of plastics on our planet.
Our mission to make sustainable, eco-friendly products the new normal starts with a product that you hold everyday. Phone cases help to protect your investment (phones are expensive!) but they shouldn’t be just another plastic product made with materials that could carry toxins into your home.
Our cases are tested to be free of BPA, lead, cadmium and phthalates. If we can make products at a higher standard to keep our family and planet safe, shouldn’t we?
I just want to make sure that I do my best to protect the planet (our home) for my children and their children and the future generations to come!”
