Bamboo iPad Case Creates A Nice Look

We’ve reported on some pretty cool eco-friendly iPad cases in recent months, including models made of cork and recycled wool felt. Now, an option constructed of fast-growing bamboo and aluminum: the Wudskins iPad Case (which comes to us via How Green Works).

This iPad case offers complete protection for your beloved device, enclosing it completely (while still leaving room for access to all those important ports). It’s constructed front and back of  Forest Stewardship Council-certified bamboo plywood (from Plyboo) and connected to a 360-degree aluminum friction hinge.

When you’re ready to use your device, just flip the case open; the cover then doubles a stand for hands-free reading.

This case–designed by four women in Gainesville Florida–has an attractively clean, modern look. No word yet on price, but there are a lot of nice pictures of it available online. Also, it looks as if the founders of Wudskins have turned to the Internet to raise $10,000 to help them fund start up costs related to their business. Want to help out? Go here.
