Review: Biodegradable, American-Made Protective iPhone 6s Case

 Biodegradable, American-Made Protective iPhone 6s Case

CES is a great way to see a wide variety of high-tech products, primarily made in China, without having to travel overseas. Yet it was an American-made product that really stood out. The eCo-Cover Soft-touch Smartphone Cover ($34.95) is distinctive because of two main features. It is made of compostable, organic corn and it is made in the USA, Nebraska to be specific.

You are not compromising comfort or protection. The material is quite comfortable and grippy material. Plus the eCo-Cover is BPA free and baby safe. There are generous openings for the mute switch, headphone jack, and Home button. There is even a screen guard (presumably not made of corn!) I would like to see more options than the black or the "leafy green" color choices. Yellow corn color would be "a natural" after all! 

Pros

  • Compostable
  • Comfortable, grippy material
  • Made in America
  • BPA-free, baby-safe
  • Includes screen guard

Cons

  • Limited color choices

Final Verdict

If you are looking for a case, but want to support American manufacturers, and the environment, the eCo-Cover Soft-touch Smartphone Cover from eCo-Cover is a great choice.
