How sustainable is the wooden card really?

Our cards are produced by our partner Exceet, who pays great attention to sustainable and environmentally friendly production. They want to avoid the use of plastic as much as possible and switch to alternative materials. This is how the wooden card came into being - fine cherry wood from sustainably managed forests in Austria. However, a thin plastic core made of recycled PET-G cannot (yet) be avoided. This, together with a built-in chip, a magnetic strip and a fine antenna, enable you to make contactless payments with your wooden card. And although it is not completely made of wood to offer you the usual functionalities, it consists of 80% less plastic than a conventional card. So it's much more sustainable than your current card. But you can't dispose of it in the compost yet. Also, don't worry: The production of the cards is sustainable and for 100'000 cards, only 1 tree is needed. We will add it to the trees we've already planted.
