  • According to Plenty Magazine, each year 75 million lbs of PVC ends up in landfills due to plastic gift card waste.
  • In a 2000 report issued by the EPA, studies found that exposure to PVC puts people at an increased risk for liver damage, reproductive and developmental health issues, and cancer.
  • PVC cannot be recycled along side other plastic household products. Instead, it must be mailed directly to one of the rare PVC recycling plants such as EarthWorks.
  • Placing PVC gift cards in the recycling bin with your other plastic items risks contaminating the entire batch of recycled goods.
  • Countless resources are wasted producing, packaging, and shipping plastic gift cards
  • Giving virtual gift cards is an eco-friendly alternative to sending traditional plastic gift cards and can be done so from the comfort of home.
