Eco-friendly Laptop Cases

The last computer case I bought was from Etsy and was made from all recycled materials. I got so many compliments on it and it lasted for five years. Recently I was on the hunt for a new eco-friendly laptop cover and was pleased to find a lot of great options, all upcycled from various materials. Some of those materials included tire tubes, wetsuits and motorcycle jackets. Pretty cool!

So I thought I’d share a couple of my finds, including the one I picked for myself.

biker-jacket-case

Reincarnations Biker Jacket Mac Book Air Case

It’s made from an upcycled biker jacket and repurposed khaki pants.

wetsuit-case

Looptworks Hoptu Laptop Case

Made from 100% recycyled neoprene, leftover wetsuit material.

cement-sack-case

FritzandFraulein Cement Sack and Leather Case

Made from a vintage Portland cement bag.  The leather piece is made from a repurposed saddle.

bike-tires-case

Uncommon Goods Recycled Bike Tube Case

Made from recycled bicycle tire tubes, sourced from local bike shops. And, it’s water resistant!

my-new-case

TheHub305 Green-E Case

This is the one I went with, though it was a tough choice.  The exterior is made of 100% recycled rubber and they even use recycled packaging.

 

Do you have any favorite eco-friendly cases?

    These cases all look so cool! I also have not needed to purchase any cases for a while. Speaking of re-purposed materials though, I recently learned that the Smart car brand makes its outer panels (which cover high-density protective steel) out of recycled milk cartons. Thanks for sharing, Alicia!

    Alicia, you made the right choice! The one you picked looks like it will provide your laptop with the best protection of the bunch.
