Treegloo strives to make their entire line of tablet and eReader cases as eco-friendly as possible. They use sustainably harvested pine, grown here in the United States, and the frames are sealed with a natural resin to create a smooth finish that seals in the wood’s natural moisture to prevent cracking or splitting. The multi-piece frame design cuts down on the amount of wood wasted — many other companies create one-piece frames that waste a monumental amount of wood and require far more energy to produce. The corners are joined with traditional carpentry techniques that make the frame extremely strong, yet flexible if dropped or bumped, reducing the risk of breakage. Each step is done by hand to ensure the highest quality.
All of the paper used to create the liners is Green Seal Certified, Forest Stewardship Council Certified and certified Carbon Neutral Plus. The liners are applied with low-VOC or water based adhesives, and the covers are made with UV resistant, animal-friendly faux leather that has been made in the USA.
