Discover Announces First Biodegradable Credit Card
Discover Card has announced the availability of the first biodegradable credit card, claiming the cards will “begin to break down in soil, water, compost or wherever microorganisms are present” and fully degrade within 5 years.
The new card is made from biodegradable PVC, which Discover says “allows 99 percent of the card plastic to be safely absorbed when exposed to landfill conditions.”
Current Discover Card holders who want a biodegradable version can request the biodegradable card at http://www.discovercard.com/customer-service/account/choose-design.html or by calling 1-800-DISCOVER (1-800-347-2683).
