GiftZip.com dislikes plastic. Manufacturing plastic gift cards wastes valuable resources and causes destructive gases to be emitted. After production, these plastic bits must be packaged, shipped, stored, likely reshipped, restored, displayed, sold, and then possibly wrapped, packaged, and shipped again. The result? A massive carbon footprint left behind by a little 1/4 ounce card. (I’ve never considered the carbon footprint of a card before but they are hardly ever reused)
The harmful effects of plastic gift cards don’t end there. Plenty Magazine, a leading resource for sustainable living, reported that plastic gift cards account for 75 million pounds of discarded Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) each year. PVC is a toxic substance that can contaminate water supplies. EPA studies show that exposure to PVC puts people at increased risk of liver damage, reproductive and developmental health problems, and cancer.
