GRID Studio is best known for creating art from vintage Apple devices that are an important part of Apple's history, tearing down iPhones, Apple Watches, and iPods for their component parts. What you may not know is that GRID Studio is also helping the environment.

Since starting to create art pieces, GRID Studio has turned more than 10,000 old smartphones from e-waste into treasure. The company says that sustainability is a major part of its business, and it aims to help protect the environment by recycling trash into art pieces beloved by Apple fans.

In honor of Earth Day, Grid Studio is offering a 20 percent site wide discount on all of its products, and 10 percent of sales are being donated to Earthday.org. The site is also providing several prizes for MacRumors readers. The main prize winner will receive a 256GB ‌iPhone 13‌ and a GRID iPhone 4S, while a second prize winner will get a customized Earth Day frame and a GRID 4S. Two third prize winners will receive a GRID iPhone 3GS.

GRID Studio focuses primarily on classic iPhones, and pricing on the art pieces starts at around $140. Each one is around 13x13x8, and includes all of the internal components of the device separated out and organized with labels so you can see everything that made the iPhone special at a glance.

With the ‌iPhone‌ 4S and 3GS, for example, the ‌iPhone‌ shell is displayed next to individual components like the power button, headphone socket, speaker, logic board, circuit board, ear piece, lightning port, and other components.

If you have a favorite classic ‌‌iPhone‌‌, there's a good chance that GRID has taken it apart. In addition to the original ‌‌iPhone‌‌, there are also GRID pieces for everything up to the ‌‌iPhone‌‌ X, along with A-series chips like the A5X, the Apple Watch, the Magic Mouse, and more.

Every GRID Studio piece includes all of the original parts of the device, but the company does not use real batteries to prevent any issues with the battery expanding or exploding with age. GRID's artwork is perfect for an office decoration or as a gift for an Apple fan. Disassembled devices are attractive to look at, informative, and offer a fun glimpse into Apple's history.
