ReCover is pleased to launch Revive, a new line of iPod cases for ecologically-minded trendsetters. Made of thermoplastic elastomer (TPE), a recyclable copolymer that combines plastic and rubber, TPE requires less energy to produce than other plastics, and yields a durable product that can last a lifetime.

The Revive line is the newest addition to ReCover’s ranges of eco-friendly iPod cases. Earlier this year, the company, previously known as Imoeba World, debuted the Alpine range. Made of bonded leather, a man-made material comprised of genuine leather scraps which are near-impossible to eliminate and destined for a landfill, the Alpine case is the perfect item for eco-conscious consumers looking for both durability and style in their iPod cases.


Revive cases feature a stylish organic design, and come in silver, white, brown and black. Available for both iPod Nano and iPod Touch, the cases’ design protects the device, while leaving screens and click-wheels easily accessible.

True to ReCover’s mandate, the cases are 100% recyclable. Packaging consists of 100% renewable plastic and 90% recycled paper.


Editors' Note: iLounge only reviews products in "final" form, but many companies now change their offerings - sometimes several times - after our reviews have been published. This iLounge article provides more information on this practice, known as revving.
