Imoeba releases eco-friendly cases for iPod classic, nano 3G

Imoeba has introduced its new Alpine line of environmentally-friendly iPod cases. The cases are made from bonded leather, a man-made material comprised of leather scraps.

“Our Alpine iPod cases are ideal for consumers wanting to make more green lifestyle choices,” says Lawrence Leung, Chief Executive of Imoeba. “The look, feel, quality and durability of the cases is as close to genuine leather as you can get, does not harm animals and are incredibly stylish.

To top it all off, the packaging is made from 90% recycled and/or recyclable paper, making the Alpine case better for our planet overall.” Featuring a flip-open design with a magnetic closure and a rotating belt clip, the cases allow access full access to the screen, Click Wheel, and headphone jack, and come in either white or green. Imoeba Alpine cases for the iPod nano (with video) and iPod classic are available from and sell for $20 and $25, respectively.
