GreenPay

It’s plastic and it’s green! There is a green credit card, GreenPay ,which is made of out recycled plastic. The card promises to help reduce carbon and here are the details:

  • 10 pounds of CO2 reduction for each $1 of eligible net purchases for gasoline and household utilities
  • 5 pounds of CO2 reduction for each $1 of other eligible net purchases *
  • New account bonus: 10,000 pounds of CO2 (which is the average annual CO2 emission of a car in the U.S.)1 will be removed as a bonus for your first card purchase
  • CO2 reductions are independently certified

I am not sure how much this helps the environment, but I applaud Mastercard for taking a step in the right direction. BTW, if you do get the card, request that you get credit card statements emailed to you and pay online to reduce paper.
