Indigo Bunting Biodegradable Phone Case


The male Indigo Bunting (Passerina cyanea) whistles a bright, lively song of high-pitched notes, singing as many as 200 songs per hour at dawn and keeping an impressive pace of about one per minute for the rest of the day. Know someone equally voluble? Then this is the phone case for them.

The Indigo Bunting represents one of the 2,580 species that make up our collection of more than 51,000 specimens of birds. Research collections such as ours are a fundamental tool for tracking changes in distribution over time.

This biodegradable phone case was made with no plastic, but rather PLA plant polymer with a bamboo binder. The material won’t add to the landfill, and becomes biodegradable in just 160 days.

It comes in several sizes, suitable for iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro, iPhone 11 Pro, Samsung Galaxy S20, Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra, and Samsung Galaxy S20+.
