Love and business

I'm so grateful to our customers for our perfect 5.0 rating on Amazon. We must be doing something right, but I wanted to dig deeper and figure out exactly what it is our customers love about the Greensleeve Case for iPad. So I went through all eight reviews looking for keywords to see what I could learn. 

Of course "green" was a big hit (tied for number one,) since the Greensleeve is made with zero plastic, zero waste, and zero electricity. But do you know what it tied with? Love. In eight reviews, the word "love" appeared nine times. I don't know of very many products out there can claim to be so well-loved, and it's very inspiring! Digging deeper into the reviews, I see that people love the Greensleeve because it's environmentally friendly, stylish, well-made, and it protects their iPads well. 

I know the Greensleeve isn't perfect, but at the end of our first year in business it's nice to look back and feel so much appreciation for what we've done. It's humbling and challenging to be helping people live greener, and I appreciate everything our customers are doing, which our products are just a small part of. Ultimately, that's what they're expressing--love for the Earth--and I'm honored to be part of that.

Great case for all ages!

My 13-year-old daughter loved getting this iPad case for Christmas. It is so unlike any other case out there and that is perfect for her. When she read the product information she loved it even more. I'd say she is the most "green" person in our family, and owning this case makes her proud. The texture (wool felt) and color (lime green) are also a unique combination that make it stand apart from the other cases out there. Her iPad fits inside the case comfortably -- even with her cover on it -- and it is a good amount of protection in her duffel bag with everything else. She is excited to go back to school and "sport" her stylish case and tell everyone how it was made in such an eco-friendly way. For the price, you can't go wrong.

Easy being green!

Love the bright green and wool texture of the envelope. Has enough room for phone, cord, hotel key, etc. Doesn't close completely at the top (see photo) but thick enough to protect during a fall. Music reference name makes it fun.

Wonderful product

I bought this case because it seemed like a very green product that was durable and protective. I am a bike commuter and was looking for something that protected my iPad (within my bike bag from all of the bumps on the road and my bike lock), easy to find in my bag (love the bright color), and green. It has met all of my expectations (plus protected my iPad from my leaky water bottle). Great product.

Beautiful, functional, and green-squared!

The greensleeve showed up quickly and in perfect condition! It is so beautifully made and you just have to feel environmentally conscious about buying one. I believe I may have to get one in charcoal also, just to be more versatile. Love it, the best cover for an iPad out there!!

Great, chic case

I got this case for my husband for Christmas, but it was so loved that it has since been passed on to my son who got an iPad for Christmas. I ordered another one for my husband. I was concerned that they'd get their iPads confused in the same cases, but my 11-year-old son has put some of his favorite "pins" on the case to distinguish it from his dad's. I got my daughter the kiwi green one, so you could say we like this case. This case is very well-made and stylish, and to think that it was done so in such an eco-friendly way only it endears it to my whole family even more. We're not eco "freaks" but we are concerned and care... and this is one small thing we can use that shows that. And it certainly catches people's attention -- we were on vacation recently and people were asking us about our cases in the airport. "Wow, this is unique!" "Where did you find this case?" For the price, I don't think you'll find a better all-around case for such a great price.

LOVE this case for travel protection

I did a lot of research for our ipad accessories since it seems silly to leave a six hundred dollar item around without protection... We generally keep our ipad out around the house with a twenty dollar INVELLOP case cover on the expensive-but-worth-it thought out stabile pivoting stand or charging on the JBL on stage dock... I was pretty sure I would like this Greensleeve case but when it first arrived I wasn't sure if it would fit around the ipad without taking it out of the invellop case. At first it was pretty tight, but since it is wool, it stretched to the perfect size after the first use. This case is very "high end crafty" looking and provides the perfect amount of protection in my bag without too much bulk or adding another layer of plastics.

I have green love for a gray case

I am SO happy I found this case. What's not to love about a product that is environmentally good for the earth and yet is aesthetically so lovely? It's a win/win. It fits my new iPad (yes, the 3rd gen) with the front wakeup cover on it, nice & snug - but easy to get in and out. The extra room on top to access the speaker jack is a smart design feature. The felt is thick enough to provide lots of cushioning. I am looking forward to using this for a long time.

Great Green Item!!

Love this product! The iPad case is sturdy and repels water well. I purchased it because of its "green" factor. No plastics at all. I would recommend this case and buy as a gift!!
