Protecting the Planet: Fewer Cards Offers a Sustainable Alternative
Polyvinyl chloride, or PVC, is a popular synthetic plastic that is used in a wide range of products, from construction materials to clothing. While PVC is useful, it is also problematic for the environment. PVC is a petrochemical product, meaning it is derived from fossil fuels like oil and gas. As such, the production of PVC contributes to greenhouse gas emissions and climate change.
The manufacturing process of PVC also produces hazardous byproducts, such as dioxins, which can cause health problems in humans and animals. Additionally, PVC is not biodegradable, meaning it can persist in the environment for hundreds of years.
We recognize the negative impact of PVC on the environment and have chosen to use bamboo, a highly sustainable and renewable resource, for our contactless business cards. By using bamboo instead of PVC, we are able to create a high-quality product that is both eco-friendly and durable.
The recent approval of the massive Willow oil drilling project in Alaska by the Biden administration highlights the need for more sustainable alternatives to fossil fuel-based products like PVC. This decision has angered climate advocates and underscores the urgent need to transition away from fossil fuels and toward more sustainable practices.
The recent train derailment in East Palestine, Ohio, which carried vinyl chloride, a highly toxic gas used in the production of PVC, highlights the dangers of PVC and the need for safer alternatives. This incident serves as a stark reminder of the risks associated with petrochemical-based products and the importance of using sustainable alternatives.
By using Fewer Cards, businesses can help promote sustainability and reduce their environmental impact. Our bamboo business cards offer a safer and more eco-friendly alternative to traditional PVC business cards. By making a small change, businesses can make a big impact on the environment and help create a more sustainable future for all.
