Advancing its position as the leading card issuer of prepaid cards via Agent Banks, Meta Payment Systems announces the launch of a new, eco-friendly prepaid card.
"This is a great step forward in changing the way we approach our prepaid business in terms of being more ecologically minded," commented Mick Conlin, Senior Vice President - Agent Products. "All of our Meta-designed cards will be manufactured on recycled card stock from this point forward. We are looking more broadly at our own 'Reduce, Reuse and Recycle' practices and are paying more attention to what our materials vendors and suppliers are doing as well."
The card is made of a 65% recycled PVC core sheet, resulting in 55% total recycled content after lamination and performance equal to cards manufactured on regular PVC. In turn, the PVC components of the card are 100% recyclable. Meta is the first to offer an eco-friendly card within the Agent Bank retail channel and will make the card available to the 1000+ banks and credit unions that participate in Meta's Prepaid Gift, Reloadable, Travel and Youth Card program.
The new recycled card features the Reduce, Reuse, Recycle mobius as a prominent design feature and is now available for financial institutions to order in time for Earth Day, April 22 and National Arbor Day, April 30.
