If you own an Arla LaserWorks Wood Phone Case then you know 3 things already:
- They are made with ethically sourced wood from an FSC Certified supplier.
- They are very protective.
- They are made with two parts. The first part is the solid wood backing which gets engraved; the second part is the encasing that it is attached to.
The encasing is a slim rubber hybrid. This keeps your phone case light, and adds extra impact-protection (and our wooden cases are protective)!
If you've seen the craftsmanship of our cases, you know that the bond between the encasing and wood is strong, seamless, and secure. Individually, both parts can be recycled, but in very different ways.
So how can we recycle the case when the two parts are so firmly attached? How do we dispose of our phone cases in such a way where they leave a much smaller footprint?
This is when my experiments started. With a little research, some trial and error, I was able to develop a completely organic solution, that when under the right circumstances, completely separates the two pieces. The wood is chipped and recycled organically, and the encasing is collected and sent to a local recycling center.
Without this separation process, it could just end up in a landfill! We don't want that! This is how our recycling program was born.

An important note: Please don't attempt to pull the case apart with your fingers or attempt to break/wedge it apart. The attachment is so secure that it will hurt your fingers and it won't work. Even if you do separate it, the wood will likely break in such a way that leaves the encasing un-recyclable. Let us do that part - you sit back and enjoy your discount. =)
