Sustainable Protective Cases for New Samsung Galaxy

US-based company Incipio, a designer and manufacturer of mobile device accessories and technologies, has announced protective case solutions containing recycling material for the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 and Galaxy Z Flip3 devices.

As reported, the grip cases have been certified to meet Samsung performance standards through the Samsung Mobile Accessory Partnership Program (SMAPP). The material is BPA-free and “includes Eastman Tritan Renew copolyester, a durable material with 50 percent ISCC-certified recycled content”, making it a more sustainable option for consumers. Tritan Renew is made through “innovative molecular recycling technology”, which breaks down plastic waste into fundamental building blocks to be used to create pristine new material”. The recycled content is achieved by allocating the recycled waste plastic using a mass balance process certified by ISCC.
