Here’s one way to make sure you don’t need to buy another phone during the pandemic

I try to be as green as I can with my lifestyle. I know I’m not perfect, but I use reusable bags at the grocery store (before COVID-19), bring along mesh bags for the produce, recycle everything that comes into our house, use reusable straws, and more.

The thought of having a “green” phone case is a perfect fit for me.

A few weeks ago, I switched my phone case over to one from Urban Armour Gear’s new line called the Biodegradable Outback Series. They market this line as “100% tough, 100% compostable, and 100% mindful” which sounds about right. The packaging for the case is 100% recyclable and printed with soy based ink.

The Biodegradable Outback Series cases are compatible with iPhone models (7, 8, XR, SE 2020, 11, 11 Pro, and 11 Pro Max) and also Samsung models (Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S20 Plus). The cases are drop-test approved and come in several colors including lilac, olive, black, and orange (an online exclusive color). 

Unfortunately, the color pink was not one of the choices, so instead I chose bright orange to celebrate the coming of warmer weather.

After receiving the case in the mail, I popped it on my phone. First impressions: It makes my phone feel less slippery than my previous case, the design is very modern and smooth (which I like), and the sides of the case wrap around the screen to protect it if I happen to drop on the floor. 

The first day having the case on my phone proved a success. 

At work, the case held up quite well. In addition to being a contributor at Gearadical.com I’m also a manager at a retail store and I always have my tool pouch on my hip. It holds everything I need for the day: scanner, pens and pencils, schedule grid, notepaper, box cutter, walkie, and my phone. 

Last week, I was on a ladder in the backroom trying to reach a box with my phone in hand (I know, it’s stupid, right?) and I ended up dropping my phone with the screen side down. My heart leapt into my throat, but the screen was fine when I picked it up. No scratches or breaks. Whew! The only damage to my phone at all was a small scrape in the upper right hand corner of the case. That means: Personal drop test is now approved! Not by choice, I should add.

After having the case on my phone for a few weeks, I’ve noticed the bottom two corners are getting darker from use, probably because I keep it in my pouch at work. 

That’s the only downside of choosing a lighter color. If I were to buy another case, I would order olive green or black so that the wear and tear won’t show as much as it does on the orange. 

Overall, I’m satisfied with the case’s performance and knowing it’s a smart environmental choice makes me happy as well. I just hope I don’t drop my phone again.
