You probably won’t have this problem in your home or office, but around here, the place smells like a scuba suit factory. Or at least what we’d assume a scuba suit factory smells like… So many iPad cases made out of neoprene–what’s up with that? Well here’s something that won’t have that problem, Plaid Doctrine’s eco-friendly iPad Sleeve. This handmade sleeve is not only eco friendly and designed to minimize it’s carbon footprint, it’s also a stylish, travel ready, and vintage inspired good looking iPad sleeve! Check out our review below…?? Designed and manufactured in the tree-hugging state of Washington, it’s made out of polyester from recycled plastic bottles. But don’t get the wrong idea–you’ve never seen your empty bottle of Dr. Pepper look so good. And last I heard, Seattle gets its fair share of rain (who knew?), so this water-resistant iPad sleeve is made to keep your precious cargo dry when you’re going from coffee shop to coffee shop. Some other key sleeve features:
After reading their blog, it’s interesting why they have made the choices they have to go with recycled bottle caps as opposed to going with another recycled product. Instead of using outdoor signs or billboard banners which are made from some scary toxic stuff sometimes, or recycled sailcloth which can be bathed in chemicals, the Plaid Doctrine iPad Sleeve is made from good ol’ recycled bottle caps. Who knew a bottle cap could look so good? These sleeves are designed and assembled just outside of Seattle, 15 miles away from the company headquarters, so the carbon footprint for these things is pretty darn low. Price is $79 – the price you pay for saving the earth in style – and includes free ground shipping. If you are looking for a vintage inspired, eco-friendly, waterproof, and just plain awesome iPad sleeve, then look no further! Pair it with a good nice iPad screen protector, and you are golden!
