Environmentally friendly cardboard case for the iPhone can be yours for under a $1
Are you going through some tough times during this unpredictable economy and looking for some kind of case to protect your prized iPhone? If you're really looking for a bargain and want to be keep in mind being environmentally friendly, then look no further with Case-Mate's iPhone Recession Case. Sure it's made out of cardboard and can be bought for a mere one dollar – all the while giving your phone some cushion. It may not be the most appealing, but a case is a case – it accomplishes what it was meant to do. Just be warned though that you'll have to put in some work making it from the pre-cut piece of cardboard. If you feel that the cardboard cover might not withstand your daily grind, then you might want to consider purchasing the ten pack “Bailout Bundle” for $7.99. Just remember that it's not waterproof – so don't go running around in the rain with it. Finally, there's no warranty whatsoever because it's made out of cardboard; go figure.

Like a freaking phone cover is going to save our planet. I hate hearing stuff like this, you honestly think 8 cardboard covers is so much better for the environment than one plastic case. If you think it is...ignorance.

I think the case is for hobos. So does hobo have iPhones? No. Probably great for people who owns a imitation iPhone, those are the people who cannot the real iPhone, probably want some cardboard protection for their hobo phones.
