Our Story

Acasta Designs launched with a sole purpose: Build a line of superior phone cases and products from materials that do no harm. As the world struggles with increasing amounts of plastic and non-biodegradable waste, we all find ourselves in the battle to do more. We believe positive action begins with everyone’s personal behavior and choices. Phones and phones cases are now a part of everyday life. You have likely owned several variations if not dozens in your life. But where are they now?

Made of bamboo and other readily available organic materials, Acasta cases are 100% compostable and eco-friendly. Our cases not only offer complete protection for your phone for the duration of its useable life, but also complete eco-protection once that useful period is up. Simply place your Acasta case in your compost pile and let Mother Earth do the rest. No compost pile? Perhaps is is a good time to consider one. Otherwise it is a simple is burying it in the yard. Really. It’s that easy.

We are under no illusions that a 100% compostable phone case is going to change the world on its own. But every journey begins with a single step, and imagine the difference in our planet and future if everybody took more. The impact would not only be measurable, but monumental.

We believe the future is up to all of us and we thank you for considering an Acasta product. If you have any questions, concerns or comments, please contact us

Our Mission

Our mission is simple: to make a difference. A good phone case is now as essential as the phone it protects. It’s a given. That doesn’t mean it needs to be one more disposable product destined to outlive its owner in some landfill or the bottom of the ocean once its useful lifecycle is completed. Small efforts matter, especially if participated in by large amounts of people. By building an eco-friendly, 100% compostable case, we—you—can feel good that you are not adding to the global trash heap. Our goal is to contribute to something bigger than ourselves to act as a catalyst for more eco-behavior.


Warm soap and water with a soft rag is best. Avoid harsh chemicals. Bleach-based wipe or cleaner is fine, but if mixing your own, use only a very mild dilution.

Your Acasta case should not be affected by a normal range of temperatures. Anything below 35 degrees F could cause it to freeze and be susceptible to cracking, and above 110 degrees F, such as on a car dash, may cause deformity. The Acasta case is not affected by chlorinated or salt water, but please remember that it is not designed as a waterproof phone case.

Great question. The terms are often interchanged and while some of their tendencies overlap, they are not the same.

Recyclable: Made of materials than can be broken down and re-used. This works only if the entire recycling chain is unbroken.

Biodegradable: Will breakdown in time with exposure to the elements. There is a very (very) wide range. In the extremes, think paper bag and styrofoam cup. 

Compostable: Will decompose and become part of Mother Earth again. Must be buried for all the necessary organisms and microorganisms to do their thing.

All Acasta cases and products are compostable so simply throw it in your compost pile or bury it.

Acasta believes and supports a number of like-minded eco-centric causes including Ryan’s Recycling, One Tree Planted, and the Pacific Marine Mammal Center. For more on each simply click on their links. Got a cause we should know about? Drop us an email at
