Beyond the face masks and hand sanitizers that have now become essential to daily life, people are looking for additional ways to protect their health and Aeris introduced an innovative copper-coated phone case that is said to kill 99.9% of microbes—including the novel coronavirus.
While there are already many products on the market that are infused with copper for its antimicrobial properties, the start-up’s Copper Case specifically addresses the fact that virtually everyone has a smartphone and the germ-collecting devices should be sanitized regularly. To offer support where it’s needed most, Aeris is devoted to donating one Copper Case to a frontline worker for every case sold.
Naturally, over time, the “first phone case designed for a global pandemic” will develop a unique patina of its own.
