Vers unveils new cases for iPod and iPhone
With the world going nuts about going green these days, it goes without saying that you ain’t in without being green. After all, we are responsible for handing over a sustainable earth to the next generation, and like an old saying goes, we don’t hand over the earth to our kids – instead, we borrow it from them. That ought to put things into perspective in the long run, and it is nice to know that companies have stepped up the effort of going green by being way more serious than they used to be. Vers is one such company, further expanding its line of sustainably built, hand-crafted wood cases for iPod and iPhone while offering open-front Shellcases that enable full display access. Each Vers case will merge the natural beauty and strength of Walnut, Cherry and Bamboo, making them the most environmentally thoughtful cases available on the market.
According to David Laituri, designer and co-founder of Vers, “The new Shellcase offers a wood case solution to those who prefer to have their iPod touch or iPhone fully protected AND 100% accessible. We’re big believers in hand-crafted wood; it has a wonderful look and feel – each one is unique. It’s surprisingly tough as well, particularly Bamboo, tougher than plastic. It looks great, offers superior protection and is the most renewable resource on the planet.”
Similar to the Vers 2X and Vers 1.5R, these new Vers cases were specially designed with the same passion for sustainability, where each tree that is used in Vers case production will be replanted by another 100 trees via Vers’ partnership with The Arbor Day Foundation and the U.S. Forestry Service in an effort to re-forest parklands damaged by fire and other natural disasters. This is clearly going miles ahead of the competition, allowing you to purchase each case without feeling guilty but by being able to sleep well instead, knowing you have done your part in helping plant a whole horde of trees in the process. You will have to fork out $39.99 for Vers wood cases for iPhone, iPod touch and iPod classic, while the iPod nano case is going for $39.99. As mentioned earlier, they will come in Cherry, Walnut and Bamboo varieties.
