The LifeProof WAKE protective case features a fashion forward wave pattern and 2-meter drop protection, all in an ultra-thin one-piece design made from over 85% ocean based recycled plastic.
WAKE is LifeProof’s first case made from recycled plastics, over 85% of which comes from ocean based recycled plastic, including fishing nets and ropes.
Fishing nets and many other recoverable plastics make up a massive portion of all plastics currently in the ocean. LifeProof WAKE cases are the only case in the Canadian market that recycle ocean plastics and turn them into stylish and sustainable cases, without sacrificing performance.
Why Make a Case from Recycled Fishing Nets?
Why do anything? Because it’s the right thing to do. While much of Canada has focused on ridding the world of plastic straws, which made up less than 1 percent of all plastics in the ocean, abandoned fishing nets and other harmful plastics make up a much greater percentage of all waste in the ocean.
What the United Nations is Saying
According to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, there are 640,000 tonnes of “ghost” fishing nets currently in our oceans which is equal to more than 10 percent of all plastic in the sea.
If these types of plastics are not recaptured, they will break down and turn into micro plastics which fish and other sea mammals will ingest. That’s why LifeProof Wake is prepared to make waves not only in their case’s design, but in the circular economy the world is working towards today.
A portion of all proceeds from cases sold will also go back to helping with clean water related causes and it all comes in a recyclable packaging.
