Cheap Phone Pouches That Will Have You Drooling by Mylittlesweethearts

recycled-phone-pouch

This Dairy Milk phone sleeve from Mylittlesweethearts (a UK business!) is made from a recycled Cadbury’s chocolate wrapper. We wish it smelt like chocolate, but it’s been cleaned and sewn up so well with a biodegradable cotton lining and soft felt backing. It offers great protection for your phone! It measures 12cm by 8.5cm, which is just right for an iPhone SE.

We love it because: keeping it in our pockets reminds us to stay eco! It’s estimated that the chocolate industry contributes as much green house gases as an entire city alone in one year. Furthermore, global rising temperatures is bad news for cocoa trees that are particularly sensitive to heat and drought. Keep this phone sleeve as a reminder to snack healthy instead, for everyone’s benefit!

Also available for:
Most phones on the market as it measures 12 cms x 8.5 cms
