We don't need to hark on about why we should all be thinking more sustainably – there's enough news about the climate crisis to clearly tell us that – but even for the best of us, we still need a nudge in the environmentally friendly direction to make the changes that'll better our planet.

In this day and age, a reusable coffee cup is no longer your get-out-of-jail-free-card for acting sustainably in other areas of your life. Now more than ever, we need to be putting our green thinking caps on and addressing how we can buy more sustainably with the clothes we wear, the beauty we put on our skin and the ornaments we place in our homes. So, this September, we're doing exactly that.

Our new 'Sustainable September' series will be highlighting the best sustainably-minded products and brands that range over fashion, beauty and homeware, everyday throughout the month, showing that there are earth-affable options that you can opt for. Today, we're looking at the eco-friendly brand, Listening Store, and their biodegradable phone cases that are shaping the way we accessorise or phones.

Prick up your ears! Have you ever thought about what damage your phone accessories may be doing to the environment? We neither, until we got a call from Listening Stores, the new brand on the block who are producing biodegradable phone cases.

Founded during the lockdown period, the co-founders – who are both young marketeers with Selfridges, Harvey Nichols and the Net-A-Porter Group on their collective resume – wanted to make the most of the spare time that they had, and felt that there was a gap in the market for eco-friendly phone cases. As it turns out, 75% of the global population owns a mobile phone, and sadly it’s no surprise that most of these are incased in plastic coverings. Thankfully, Listening Store are on a mission to convert at least a small percentage of these customers to replace their pre-existing plastic cases with a compostable and biodegradable one.

Listening Store are bringing to life creations that are smarter, stronger and more sustainable, in a plastic littered world. These 100% biodegradable phone cases are not only a perfect fit for your phone, but their 2mm thickness hold provides an anti-shock feature, and a resistant scratch finish. In a range of natural hues, each phone cases canvas has been used to project positive slogans that will help you, and anyone that catches a glance, an inspirational expression to help motivate, and nudge you to get involved with fighting the climate crisis. 

What happens when you’re finished with your case? Don’t trash it, smash it. It might appear to be a strange idea, but by sending your case back to Listening Store you will ensure your unique product can be returned back to nature. And, as your case can’t go in the recycling bin, by sending it back you are therefore ensuring that it will be composted in the right environment. And of course, every item of packaging that comes with your phone case is compostable, recyclable or biodegradable. So, while we have spoken, they have listened, and we couldn't be more stoked.
