American Express Takes Aim At Single-Use Plastics

Credit cards, for many Americans, are not single-use plastic.

But with such an emphasis on the topic these days, American Express and environmental group Parley for the Oceans is out with news about a new credit card aimed at the issue.

American Express is launching what the financial company calls "the first ever" credit card primarily made from plastics reclaimed by Parley from beaches, islands and coastal communities.

The company also is creating a project to help clean up to 1 million pounds of plastics through beach clean-up efforts in conjunction with Parley.

American Express also is developing a credit card recycling program.

The new credit card made primarily from recycled plastic will launch later this year, and the recycling program is set for next year for consumer, small business and corporate cards in the United States. Users can send expired or defective cards to the company for recovery.

"We're committed to raising awareness for the issue of marine plastic pollution and doing our part to care for the oceans and coastal communities that we all share," Doug Buckminster, a group president for American Express, in a statement.
