The standard PVC plastic card (PVC is the core plastic in most credit and bank cards, and many gift cards) is very durable and will last a long, long time. It will last so long that it will still be in the landfill in 100 years. This has to stop.
The PentaGONE GREEN plastic is 100% biodegradable and compostable. It's manufactured from agri-based starches. It contains absolutely no oil-based products. Manufactured in a plant that only uses renewable energy sources, the plastic is certified 'compostable' by the Biodegrable Products Institute (BPI) and the United States Composting Council.
