About

 

 It's SIMPLE! Make a great case which has minimal impact on the planet.

Phone cases contribute thousands of tonnes of waste entering our landfills and oceans and we wanted to do something about it. 

We began researching alternative materials in 2014 and struggled to find any alternatives as most were generated for the catering industry. Usually for one use products such as cup lids, forks, spoons and plates. Fortunately we found a supplier who would help us refine the resins to suit our needs. In the traditional plastics industry it is unheard of for a plastics supplier to help a small business, let alone offer custom batches and small quantities to experiment with. It was a sign we were on the right path. 

 

 

 

The resin used to make up BiO Case is made from a Non - Genetically Modified Organism (GMO) corn starch. Not only is the corn starch resin renewable but it is also 100% compostable*. 

*Unlike some biodegradable plastics our cases will not require an industrial compost unit. A functioning residential unit will be sufficient. To make the case 100% compostable you will just need to remove the tape from the wood.

THE GOOD NEWS. Our wooden veneers have already been prepared in anticipation of a successful Kickstarter.

Risks and challenges

Setting up supply chains can be very difficult but we have done this already through our research stage. As we trialled numerous resins we already have our suppliers and manufactures connected.

Manufacturing: Without a doubt the most risky part of our project was using the corn starch resins. You will be happy to know that this stage has already been completed. Our next step is to open up tooling. The tooling has been designed and reviewed allowing us to start production once we hit our goal.

Shipping: We have been shipping products all over the world for four years so we are confident in our efficiency to get the orders out in a timely manner. We have also incorporated the help of Backerkit which helps streamline data and surveys for shipping.
