iPhone Covers Out of Skateboard Scrap

Recycling and new technology can go hand in hand. Old skateboards will now cover your new iPhones. Grove the innovative makers of eco friendly bamboo Mac and iPhone covers are now introducing another eco friendly covering option for iPhone 4 & 4S. They’re calling this new iPhone covering the “Skate Back” and are scavenging the raw martial from the waste of skateboard factories and recycling plants and converting them into an eye-catching eco friendly iPhone accessory. Instead of installing new production units Grove has partnered with a firm called MapleXO that makes recycled eco friendly skateboard jewelry.


The SkateBack makes a short journey from raw skateboard waste at skateboard factory PS Stix, to eye-catching ply with Lindsay at Maple XO, to cell phone accessory at Grove. PS Stix owner Paul Schmitt, of Costa Mesa, CA, has been designing and producing skateboards for nearly three decades. A skateboarder himself, his products are known worldwide for their quality, performance, and durability. PS Stix makes more than 4,000 skateboards every day, 200 per hour, almost three per minute! Thanks to Paul and Lindsay, we’re repurposing those scraps. SkateBack comes in three color schemes and are available on Grove's website for $49 each.
