You Don’t Have to Worry About the Card Tearing Or Falling Apart

The durability matches those of traditional gift cards- the paper ones are stiff and will slide into your wallet just as easily.

According to CNN, Gift cards continue to be one of the most requested gifts in America. Approximately two billion cards were sold in 2014. With gift cards, driver’s licenses and other cards often get thrown away, approximately 75 million pounds of PVC material becomes waster every year.

Recycle Nation recommends asking retailers if they have a card recycling program, if you’re wondering what to do with the used up plastic cards you still have!
