American Express and Parley worked in collaboration to combat the issue of marine plastic pollution with a 'Keep it Blue' project. This partnership introduces the first credit card made out of ocean plastic materials. Keep it Blue aims to raise awareness about plastic pollution with Card Members, business partners and colleagues of American Express. In addition to the environmentally friendly credit card, American Express is also dedicating itself to reducing its use of single-plastic materials across its global operation.
The first ocean plastic credit card will be crafted from upcycled marine plastic debris found in the ocean and on the coasts. As of now, the card is merely a prototype but plans are for it to go through testing and refinement and it is anticipated that it will be available within the upcoming 12 months.
