About Pela:

Pela creates products free from BPA, lead, cadmium, and phthalates. Their cases are sturdy and intended to last. While their items are biodegradable, they aren’t compatible with most home composting setups and will only break down when placed in the appropriate composting environment.

This means that the sturdy cases will remain strong enough to protect your phone and will only break down when placed in the appropriate composting environment.

Pela Case ensures that products are free from BPA, lead, cadmium, and phthalates.


Pela produces most of its cases and accessories in Canada and Hong Kong. Cases are created with longevity in mind.

100% compostable phone case products are made with high recycled material content, most having the ability to compost at the end of their life. (Please note that compostable plastic will not biodegrade in a landfill and must be properly placed in a compost environment.)

Sustainability Efforts:

The Pela 360 program allows customers to upcycle their old Pela Case product into a new one, or allow the company to properly recycle them.
