Schmear Campaign | Trendsetter: Jane Goodall | Ecofriendly Cellphone Accessories


Smartphones have become our mailboxes, maps, cameras, clocks, calendars, books, and music players. In that spirit of multipurpose minimalism, we went on the hunt for some ecofriendly cell accessories. —Avital Andrews
