for iPhone 4/4S & 5/5S

Mobile Device Accessories

The compostable and biodegradable Nite Ize BioCase protects your iPhone 4/4S or 5/5S respects the environment, and makes a colorful personal statement all at the same time. If that isn't sustainable, we'll eat the recycled packaging it comes in.

Product Information

Wrapped in "anti-packaging," the Nite Ize BioCase comes in a simple sleeve made of 100% post-consumer recycled paperboard, printed with non-toxic ink using new dot technology that requires less ink than conventional printing methods. And that's just the beginning! The Biocase itself is made in the USA of Green Dot® GDH-B1 Bio Resin -the world's first certified compostable elastomer, comprised of organic materials that meet the strictest domestic and European standards of compostability and biodegradability: when consistently exposed to a suitable composting environment*, it fully breaks down into organic compounds in a matter of months. Soft, flexible yet surprisingly durable, the BioCase fits snugly around your iPhone 4/4S or 5/5S, slides in and out of your pocket easily, and comes in a variety of solid colors and designs that reflect a wide spectrum of styles and moods. It's the perfect plastic solution!

    This is a great case. I am on my second. I've been using my BioCase for my iPhone 4s and love it. The BioCase is very durable and my first case lasted almost two years before the bottom started cracking but that is most likely because I would use the part of the case like a mini handle when pulling my phone out of my front pocket. I dig that it is produced from recycled materials and made in the USA. My first case was white and now I have a black one. I think the best part of the case is that it is soft but not too soft. While I like the feel of softer cases, I find the are harder to slide in and out of pockets. The firmness of this soft case is perfect to easily take in and out, seated or standing. Finally the design works perfectly with accessing all of the buttons and controls of the phone.

    Just received my phone cover and absolutely love it! I was so happy to see they were made in the U.S.A. I will be referring family and friends. I ordered the bright yellow and would love Nite Ize to make a yellow case with a smiley face on the back! Just a thought;). Great won't be disappointed.

    This case is fantastic - the covered buttons are really responsive, and there's plenty of space for plugging in headphones and the charger, which I've heard is an issue with some other cases. This case fits my iPhone 4S like a glove - its snug enough that it feels secure, but is also reasonably easy to remove again. I spent weeks researching ethical, eco-friendly iPhone cases, and I'm so glad I found this. It's perfect!

    Black case on black iPhone Awesome awesome awesome case! I purchased it from REI and am very happy with it. What actually drew me to this case was the fact it's made in the USA. I wasn't in the market for a new case, but I felt much better about spending what I did on an innovative design from a environmentally conscious company rather than an overpriced piece of foreign junk from any of the big mobile carriers or elsewhere. I've purchased numerous other products from Nite Ize and will be a customer for life. Thank you! Pros: Sleek Snug fit Great grip Excellent protective design without being bulky Perfect access to ports and controls Subtle logo design Cons: N/a
