Audio brand House of Marley creates products that contribute to global reforestation and use sustainable materials. Its eco-conscious identity was created with Bob Marley’s family, to continue a legacy of love for music and planet.

House of Marley’s new Liberate Air wireless earbuds provide an alternative in a plastics-driven market. Crafted from bamboo, natural wood fibre composite made from sawdust, recyclable aluminium and a fabric composed of recycled plastic bottles – plus recycled silicone interchangeable ear tips – these earbuds provide a sustainable sound experience without compromising on quality.

Extended listening

Liberate Air earbuds have a nine-hour battery life and the case provides an additional 2.5 charges, totalling 32 hours’ listening time – up there with the best on the market. They’re perfect for everyday commutes, long journeys and extended listening sessions.

You can manage your music, calls and even Siri or Google Assistant with just a tap of the earbud. You can also use each earbud independently; switching into mono mode can conserve battery life and increase awareness of the world around you.

Designed for active lives and rugged environments, these earbuds are also sweat and weather resistant to an IPX4 rating.

Supporting restoration

‘We wanted to ensure we provided a sustainably crafted alternative using consciously sourced and recycled materials’, explains Josh Poulsen, House of Marley’s director of product development.

Liberate Air’s consciously sourced materials reflect House of Marley’s mission as the first audio brand to craft products that include sustainable materials and contribute to global reforestation. The goal is to increase awareness of consumption and waste in the plastics-driven consumer electronics market.

Buying the Liberate Air contributes to tree planting through House of Marley’s Project Marley environmental give-back platform. Through donations to non-profit organisation One Tree Planted, House of Marley supports global reforestation, with 186,000 trees planted to date.
