IRVINE, Calif., April 1, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Incipio®, award-winning designer and manufacturer of mobile device accessories and technologies, is proud to announce a partnership with Eden Reforestation Projects (Eden). Following a one-for-one model throughout the year, for every Organicore case purchased, Eden will plant one tree in the regions most impacted by deforestation. As a special celebration for Earth Month and to encourage everyone to take a step into sustainability, Eden will plant five trees for every Organicore purchase made throughout April. The partnership allows Incipio to give back to the global community while providing customers with an eco-conscious product solution.
"Our partnership with Eden represents another step forward in Incipio's continued commitment to sustainability," said Brian Stech, CEO of Incipio. "We're excited to give back to our global community on an ongoing basis by planting trees where they're needed most. During Earth Month, we're especially proud to increase our donation to five trees for every Organicore purchase."
Organicore is made up of 100% compostable plant and bio-based materials that reduces landfill waste by naturally re-entering the environment from where it started. Organicore materials have been tested to meet EN 13432/ASTM 6400 compostable standards and are effectively registered by DIN CERTO as compostable, meaning this case is 100% compostable and non-toxic. On top of a responsibly made design, Organicore's unique structural properties offer mobile devices a high level of protection from bumps, drops and everyday wear and tear. Organicore cases are available now for leading Apple and Samsung smartphone devices and various AirPods.
"We are grateful to our partners at Incipio for supporting our mission to eliminate extreme poverty through global forest restoration," said Debra Crawford, CDO of Eden Reforestation Projects. "This partnership will make a significant impact on the restoration of land and lives."
Eden Reforestation Projects is non-profit organization whose mission is to hire impoverished villagers at fair wages to grow, plant, and guard to maturity native species forest on a massive scale. By 2025, the organization aims to plant 500 million trees each year to aid global forest restoration and to offer hope through the employment of people in countries where poverty is rampant.
