Our rampant consumerism isn’t exactly having a positive effect on poor Mother Nature. We could talk about using biofuels for our cars and solar panels for our homes, but what about something as small as a protective case? Covering this smaller but relatively important realm is Bioserie, with a new line of iPod touch 4G cases made of plant materials.
If you want to go green, this is probably the way to go. The bioserie iPod touch 4G case is meant to provide an “environmentally friendly option for Apple device owners.” You still get complete protection against a random bump or bruise, but you have the piece of mind that your protective case is made of a “unique blend of bioplastics which are all derived from plants and annually renewable resources.” This is not unlike the recent push toward bamboo-based products.
On the manufacturing front, bioserie is working to keep its impact as minimal as possible too, “emitting considerably less greenhouse gas” than the regular process. This isn’t the first plant-based cover from bioserie either, as they already have cases for the iPhone 4, iPhone 3G/3GS, iPod touch 2G/3G, and iPod nano.
You have a choice of black, white, sky blue and pink; sadly no green for this model. The bioserie plant-based iPod touch 4G case retails for $34.95 and comes with free international shipping from Hong Kong.
