We’ve all experienced these moments where we wished the speaker on our smartphone was louder. eco-made has come up with a simple amplifier for the iPhone that is able to increase the sound emitted. What makes these ‘eco-amps’ terrific, is that they’re made from 100% recycled paper.
It arrives in a flat envelope, so you’ll need to do a little origami work to fold it into shape. But seriously, it’s just a piece of presumably slightly thicker paper that’s been folded in the shape of a cone, so you could probably just do the same thing by cutting up an old shoebox.

- Monolith – A Battery Pack, iPhone Case Plus Projection Device
Each pack is sold online for $7.99 and comes with two eco-amps
After all, despite the name, there is no actual amp here. It’s more like the horn from an old phonograph. We’ve all rolled up a paper cone to use like a makeshift megaphone and this works in basically the same way.
Creating company eco-made of Los Angeles claims that you’ll increase the volume on your iPhone speaker to 30dB.
