23 Jul Eco-Friendly iOS Accessories
For the environmentally conscious among you, we’ve put together a list of accessories for the iPhone and iPad that not only look stylish and are incredibly unique, but they are also kind to the environment.
The iBamboo Speaker for the iPhone is, as the name suggests, made out of only bamboo. As stated on the website, no other materials are needed to create this speaker for the iPhone, as the “natural resonance of the bamboo amplifies the sound produced by the built-in speaker in the iPhone 4/4S. Being a naturally occurring material, this speaker is 100% eco-friendly and efficient to manufacture. It’s a simple yet beautiful iPhone speaker solution, which also, as the company puts it, will “improve the feng-shui” wherever you place it.
There is also a more ‘urban’ version of the iBamboo, which came about after many voiced their concern of the bamboo version being
damaged while travelling. The iBamboo urban design is identical to that of its more natural counterpart, however, it is made out of recycled plastic. Once again, the iBamboo urban design is electricity free and relies on the resonance and amplification properties of the original design.
