Discover biodegradable credit cards

Postby Mogul of Pineapples » Wed Dec 17, 2008 8:59 pm

A week ago Discover announced they now offer an option for biodegradable cards. The new card is made out of a biodegradable PVC which they say will breakdown 99% within 5 years in a landfill-type environment.

Does anyone have this card of seen anyone with it?

p.s. Here is the Discover Biodegradable card review.

They should be doing this with every credit card. well except for the Centurion card because I don't think it's possible to make titanium biodegradeable :ppp

Discover Card Biodegradable

Yes the claims are that the card will biodegrade 99.9% over 5 years in landfill conditions. So hopefully keeping it in your wallet is not that kind of condition.
This card is geared towards the eco-friendly customers.
