Loud & unplugged

We’re all into the easy way to listen to our music, but what about connecting with your tunes responsibly -ecologically, that is. The iBamboo makes this possible by constructing a natural amplifier for your iPhone 4/4S from bamboo. There’s no need for power – your phone is all the power it needs!

Get your hands on the Bamboo Keyboard & Mouse set made from 100 per cent (yes, even the keys) renewable, biodegradable bamboo for a more eco-friendly way to surf the web.
