A lot of credit card companies are jumping on the greenwagon by offering affinity cards that kick back a portion of their fees to green organizations. Now Discover has launched the first truly green card--one that is biodegradable. Astonishingly, 99% of the card's substance is made from biodegradable PVC, which is said to degrade into the environment with minimal impact within 5 years.

Implications - Biodegradable PVC is a relatively new concept that is created from a mixture of limestone, plasticizers and petroleum. With the news about global warming, it is important that big companies are stepping up to the plate and creating eco-friendly items that will give people the chance to support the environment.
