A Biodegradable Credit Card?

Posted by Madison on August 6, 2009

What will they think of next? I just stumbled across the Biodegradable Discover More Card. Really? A biodegradable credit card?

I had no idea that simple little credit cards created so much waste. Here’s how Discover is pitching the card:

New biodegradable card plastic breaks down 99% within five years in landfill conditions and leaves no toxic effects behind.

Of course, they also mention the 1% unlimited Cash back Bonus. (After your total annual purchases exceed $3,000; other purchases that are part of your first $3,000 earn .25%.)

It would be interesting to see their research on how many people get the card just because it’s biodegradable…


WT Direct has extended the $25 to $150 Sign up Bonus until August 15, 2009.

  1. Just another way to tell us all how bad people we are for using things that will eventually pollute the environment. And besides, how many people just throw their credit cards away so they end up in a landfill? Can you say Identity Theft?
