Many of you come to our website and ask us if we have models of Original POPSICASE for iPhone 12, 13 or Galaxy S20, or Huawei, or other eco-responsible brands like Fairphone
You will not find another startup in the world that has ventured, alone, to design a mold, manufacture it from scratch and inject a 100% recycled material in Barcelona
The answer we give you, always with infinite regret, is NOT YET, we do not have them, and we are still not sure in which moment we will be able to offer them to you this year. In this article we wanted to explain to you the 2 reasons why we still do not have more Original POPSICASE models, hoping not only that you can understand us, but also seeking your support to our initiative for which we continue working with a lot of love and energy.
1. Because we are intrepid
No matter how hard you look, you will not find another startup in the world that has ventured, alone, to design a mold, manufacture it from scratch and inject a 100% recycled material in Barcelona (not a single action in Asia). If you do it, tell us who it is because we will contact them and we will do the wave together.
And the fact is that producing an INNOVATIVE cell phone case, although it may seem a simple and trivial accessory, is a complex process that, as you can see in this article, requires the intervention of various professionals, from engineers to foundries, through fishermen, injectors, molders, or waste managers and, consequently, a strong investment in resources and time.
If you read the article and watch the videos, it might seem that the production process of a case for any model, the iPhone 8 for example, is simple and feasible for anyone. However, there is a major stumbling block: THE MOULD, and I write it in capital letters because it is a steel behemoth weighing almost half a tonne, which can take up to 4 months to make due to its great complexity. A single phone model implies an enormous economic effort.
We believe that the best option is to be on the factory floor, working hand in hand with the industrialists to exchange impressions and control that each piece that comes out fits to the millimetre. Producing in Barcelona while minimising processes and energy consumption as much as possible is simply a commitment to a type of sustainable economy that appeals to common sense. And we want to continue producing in Europe, something we will only be able to do with our own moulds.
Can a small startup from Barcelona keep up with the frenetic pace imposed by the big phone companies with the launch of new models, investing every year in dozens of moulds? It’s not easy and that’s why we’ve decided to stop to take a breath of fresh air and tackle production in a sustainable way.
2. Because we have an exclusive, original and widely demanded design.
Making something that EVERYBODY has, is not our goal (nor is it for any company). We have designed a case with a handle that is unique in the world and is a revolutionary invention that is fervently requested from all over the world. Every day we receive messages from Australia, United States, United Kingdom, Holland, France, Germany, Belgium asking us for Original POPSICASE for almost all models. There are people who do not change their cell phone because they do not want to leave the POPSICASE AWAY.
We are aware that POPSICASE with handle is a MUST! Who uses it (myself 😏) can’t give it up. That’s why we are fighting to get support to bring it forward (POPSICASE with and without handle).
3. We continue to conserve the sea with a biodegradable material. Support our project!
Not having a mold for Original POPSICASE does not mean that we do not continue to work for sustainability. That’s why, while we find a sustainable solution to make our handle sleeve, we have started working with a material that can completely biodegrade within a year, and can be adapted to any simple mould.
So we have just launched Discover POPSICASE, a case that not only protects the screen and the phone from all 4 sides, but also support OCEAN CONSERVATION by collaborating with the Marine Science Institut aiming to increase public awareness of the most important and most endangered plant in the Mediterranean: POSIDONIA & CORAL
The result is a sustainalbe case, resistant to any kind of shock and extremely pleasant to touch, because the final material is not completely uniform. DISCOVER IT HERE and SUPORT US!
