If you’re looking for an eco-friendly phone case, then you owe it to yourself (and to the environment) to check out Pela. This unique brand has the answer to non-biodegradable plastic cases, and for Prime day, you can take between 20 and 25% off its entire collection on Amazon and Pela’s online store. Read on to find out more about the innovative compostable materials used in these phone cases and how you can save with a special promo code.

Most smartphone cases and covers are made largely or entirely of plastics. When people say “plastic” they’re typically referring to synthetic petroleum-based polymers. These polymers are ubiquitous today owing to their low cost of manufacturing and easy moldability, but they do not break down like organic materials and have become a persistent problem for the environment with buildup in landfills and oceans. For its phone cases, Pela instead utilizes a unique material that it calls bioplastic. With great deals on iPhone cases and Samsung cases, Pela is a solid option for smartphone protection.

This bioplastic is not merely biodegradable, a rather vague term that doesn’t necessarily mean something is entirely environmentally safe. Pela phone cases are actually 100% compostable. Formed from a proprietary blend of plant-based materials, the flexible and durable Pela cases both protect your phone and the environment by completely breaking down into carbon, water, and organic biomass (no synthetic or toxic byproducts left behind) at the same rate as cellulose “meaning you can go ahead and toss your Pela case onto the compost pile when it’s time for a new one.

Pela makes cases for the entire line of currently available Apple iPhones as well as Samsung Galaxy and Google Pixel Android smartphones, and for Prime Day, you can take between 20 and 25% off the of the whole collection: The checkout code PELADT25 knocks 20% off of Apple iPhone and Samsung Galaxy Pela cases on Amazon. Digital Trends readers can get a slightly better discount directly from Pela, which is offering 25% off its cases including the popular Honey Bee Edition, Mandela Edition, and Turtle Edition models with the promo code PELADT25 (and you also get free worldwide shipping on orders of more than $25).

Amazon's Prime Big Deal Days 2023 brought back Prime Day deals for all kinds of devices, including 3D printers. If you want to get into this as a hobby or business, or if you need to upgrade your machine, then check out this offer for the AnkerMake M5. From its original price of $799, it's down to $500. The $299 in savings is pretty huge, especially since you'll be enjoying the amazing innovations offered by this 3D printer.

First and foremost, the 3D printer's assembly is very simple -- it will only take 15 minutes to complete, as there are only three steps to it. Once it's up and running, there are several features that will make operating it easy, including an integrated camera that can detect errors and send you alerts so you can intervene, 7x7 auto-leveling for accuracy and stability, and the ability to resume prints right where it left off after interruptions like a power outage.
