Fact #1: Wooden Accessories are Super Durable

Contrary to popular belief, wooden phone accessories and wooden laptop accessories are actually much more durable than plastic. Plastic can and does warp, break, melt, and chip over time, whereas wooden accessories tend to hold their value, stay in tact, and look classy forever.


Fact #2: Wooden Accessories are Far More Ecological Than Plastic

It's pretty much common sense when you think about the fact that wooden accessories are far more ecological than plastic accessories are, and for good reason. Wood and the production of wooden accessories leaves far less of a carbon imprint. Trees, when growing and alive, absorb carbon monoxide from the air, leaving behind clean, filtered air for all of us to enjoy. On the other hand, plastic manufacturing actually puts carbon into the air, along with myriad other chemical compounds that are harmful to the ozone, human health, and wildlife.


Fact # 3: Wooden Accessories Do Not Contain BPA

BPA, or Bisphenol A, is a synthetic compound which is used in the manufacturing of plastic products to bind the plastic together. Did you know that the majority of plastic products, unless specified on the product itself, contain BPA? What's worse is that this chemical has been found to be hazardous to human health - and most all plastic products containins BPA release the compound into the air around you, paving the way for health hazards as terrible as cancer. Imagine a product sitting across the room from you putting off harmful chemicals into the air. Now, imagine yourself using a plastic phone case on your phone, in which you hold against your skin - and your head, no less - each and every single day. Wooden iPhone cases and Wooden Android Phone cases don't do that, so there's no need to worry. You can trust Oakywood wooden accessories with your health!

Fact #4: Wood Accessories are Unique!

If you're like us, you love uniqueness. That's what you'll find with Oakywood Accessories. You see, no two pieces of wood are exactly the same - so each individual wooden phone case and wood laptop docking station is exactly that - individual and unique.


Fact #5: Your Wooden Accessories' Beauty Will Improve With Time

Unlike plastic, which warps, chips, wears away, cracks, and even melts over time, our wooden accessories are incredible in the way that, as time wears on, your wood phone accessories, wooden docking stations, and wooden charging stations will all gain character and patina over time. Those little nicks, dents, and bangs against your products will only bring your accessories character and life. As an added bonus, oils from your skin from touching your wooden phone case, wooden charging station, wooden laptop docking station, and more wooden Oakywood products will really give way for the beauty of our wood to truly come through, displaying each individual wood grain within.


Bonus Fact #6: The Esthetic is Unmatchable

If you were to place two products of a similar nature next to one another, one being plastic, and the other wooden, which one would you believe to be more attractive? The wooden product, of course. There's just something incredibly classy about wood that plastic can't touch. That's yet another reason why Oakywood products supersede the competition - because, truth be told, there really is no competition. We are unique, our products speak for themselves, and they hold a timeless beauty that is unmatched by any other.
