Skateboards get a new life as iPhone accessories. Rad.

Upcycled skateboard iPhone backsI will always be a skater girl at heart, but my style has evolved toward more subtle fashion choices than the G&S Skate Rat Pool Party t-shirt I rocked back in the day. Like these hip and gorgeous iPhone backs made from discarded skateboard material.

A super cool collaboration between Grove and MapleXO, the iPhone 4/4S SkateBack
is crafted from post-production skateboard waste. That means less stuff
in landfills and more ways to dress up your iPhone. I’m partial to the
colorful Vibrant style, but for those still dressing in all black (and
New Yorkers), the Calm and Neutral styles will coordinate perfectly.
be clear, the SkateBack is a back, not a case. It attaches to the back
of your phone with adhesive–the sides and screen are fully exposed. But
if you’ve already got a sleeve for your iPhone and just want to up the
fancy ante, the SkateBack is a totally rad way to do it. -Julie
