Made in Mesa, Arizona, REVISIT’s new solid brass and acetal plastic bumper-case transforms an iPhone from a slippery glass smartphone into a substantial feeling piece of hardware—and without adding too much weight. They're sophisticated, with just the right tinge of retro-styling and come with a bonus for your conscience: a percentage of the profits go to a very good cause. The Houston-based company says their mission is to create products that “honor and assist endangered or forgotten communities, cultures and histories.”

While the founders Jillian DiIorio and Brent Celek traveled through several National Parks, they discovered the struggles each park was having to maintain funding and programs. REVISIT donates 25% of their profits to help preserve several national parks—including Olympic National Park, Acadia National Park and Yellowstone. Those donations help supplement park programs like the the Glacier Youth Corps Partnership, which engages teens with employment opportunities while developing conservation skills, or the Law Enforcement Bike Fund at Philadelphia's Independence National Historical Park, which purchases and maintains much-needed bicycles for park rangers.

A great looking case that is as good for your phone as it is for the environment, the REVISIT brass iPhone case is available online for $125 in black, orange and indigo.
