If you go through iPhone cases like I do, you might be interested in this newly available case from Miniwiz made out of "100 percent trash" that you can buy for slightly less than $25.

The product, which fits iPhone 4, is called Re-case. It is made out of rice farming by-products that have been reprocessed into a material called Polliber. The rice husks have been added to post-consumer thermoplastics to create this material, which is itself recyclable.

As you can see from the photo above, the case comes in a bunch of different colors, and it has a shape that is unique from what I've seen on the market in the past. The company describes this as the "ripple design," which it touts for its ergonomic features.
