PET is widely considered to be a more environmentally sound material than standard PVC due to the absence of chlorine in the production process. In addition, PET is more recyclable than PVC and a good infrastructure for recycling exists.
Corn or PLA (poly lactic acid) cards are extracted from corn and are an excellent alternative for environmentally conscious organizations and individuals. Aside from the renewable nature of corn, corn cards require far less energy in production and produce less green house gas than the common petroleum based alternative of PVC.
Petroleum based PVC cards are the traditional material for plastic cards. Our recycled cards are produced from recycled PVC. Recycled PVC reduces the amount of PVC that is disposed and produced which reduces the usage of our limited natural resources.
