It all begins with someone like you
At mellow, we constantly work to innovate and find ways to make our products more sustainable. We know business decisions almost always come down to dollars and cents, but we also know that we need to look at the bigger picture. We believe Canada needs a robust community of entrepreneurs who use their companies to create inclusive prosperity in an environmentally sustainable way. Taking positive steps for society and the environment is just something that had to be integrated into our business, from supporting NGO’s (by giving 1% of our sales to Plastic Oceans Canada) to taking responsibility for the treatment or disposal of post-consumer plastic phone cases.
Let’s keep phone cases IN our loop, not OUT.
The average smartphone user upgrades to a new mobile device every two years and changes phone cases even more often. In this fast-fashion world where it’s so easy to upgrade, we forget that the phones and cases we leave behind quickly add up. Solving this growing problem requires creating a plastics economy that is smart, sustainable, and circular. The easiest way to make a circular economy possible is to catch the products while they are being consumed, before they get mixed up with everything else.
