Rather than a mission, PitaCare is a sustainability journey put in place to protect and care for what matters the most to us - the world and the people around us. We care for people, their feelings, and their everyday life. We make what people can use and enjoy to simplify their lives. But that's not enough looking from a long-term perspective. We live on and share one home, the Earth, and it is facing severe environmental problems. To protect our planet, PITAKA embarked on a journey to generate less waste and leave behind smaller footprints for a better world.
Our products are built to last.
We're committed to building products that outlast the competition. When we built different kinds of cases and accessories from these materials, we intended to make them last. Both aramid fiber and carbon fiber are highly durable and scratch-resistant, ideal for making things that we use daily, such as phone cases and wallets. In fact, they can outlast steel and aluminum, which can no longer be used safely when the metal fatigues, but those fiber composites remain stable indefinitely.
We won't begin mass production to reduce manufacturing waste unless we decide a product is worth to our customers after tons of marketing research and asking our customers for their opinions.
Reusing production leftovers.
In 2019, we discovered that more and more leftover materials were processed using burial treatment since manufacturers couldn’t process those small-sized materials. So how to deal with those scraps in an environmentally friendly way was a problem we were facing. That’s why we have the PitaGear series. We designed a series of products in various sizes to get the most out of those leftover materials, reducing waste and bringing more practical and unique products to our users.
Our Carbon Fiber Watch Band, for example, includes some links from carbon fiber cutoffs and recycled materials from MagEZ Wallets. Instead of dumping them in the landfill, we are trying to use what we have at hand to create something valuable.More about PitaGear
PITAKA replaced EVA foam with paper in packaging starting from 2019. By 2021, we totally get rid of EVA foam in packaging. In 2022, taking a big step forward, we used 100% biodegradable materials to make our iPhone 14 case packages, most of which are bagasse. Bagasse is an environmentally friendly material that generates no wastewater and requires no printing ink or plastic during manufacturing. For every 400 package boxes made using bagasse from sugar factories, we save a 40-year-old tree from being cut down to produce paper.

1000 Trees Planted in Africa
In September 2022, we planted 1,000 trees in Africa. And it's just beginning. We will be planting more trees around the globe in areas where trees are most needed.
