CPI unveils card made from recovered ocean-bound plastic

CPI Card Group is introducing a payments card, called Second Wave, with a core made from recovered ocean-bound plastic.

The firm says "one of the largest" US-based card-issuing financial institutions has signed on to offer customers the EMV, dual interface Second Wave card.



Scott Scheirman, CEO, CPI Card Group, says: "With Second Wave, we are drawing attention to the upcycling potential of plastic waste that is either in the ocean or imminently ocean-bound.

"We estimate that for every one million Second Wave payment cards produced, over one ton of plastic will be diverted from entering the world’s oceans, waterways and shorelines."
