Credit Card Deducts Users’ Carbon Footprint with Every Swipe
Sustain:Green is introducing a points reward system that offsets users' environmental impact
Through adapting the business of plastic, Sustain:Green wants to reward its cardholders with less carbon dioxide emissions to their name. The startup provides biodegradable cards that fight against climate with each purchase through offset rewards.
The guarantee is for every dollar spent using the Sustain:Green card two pounds of CO2 will be eliminated. Their website reads: “We look beyond the standard corporate model of profitability, and instead have adopt a ‘triple bottom line’ where our social and environmental mission are given equal weight as our economic business mission.”
