allpay cards Eco degradable

allpay cards Eco degradable is the most sustainable eco solution without compromising on quality, printability, durability and certification requirements. It’s made up of 57% sea salt and only 43% crude oil making it less dependant on oil than any other plastics, consequently using less gross energy and therefore having a lower impact on global warming.

Sustainable Stationery

We offer a wide range of sustainable stationery from the traditional card on A4 letter and envelope to bespoke packaging. All of the paper used on our A4 letters and envelopes are 100% biodegradable, 100% compostable and 100% recyclable. We also offer an incredible range of sustainable packaging, with 100% cardboard constructions. Sustainable packaging uses less water and energy to produce, consequently reducing the impact on the environment.

End-to-end Recycling

We already recycle 100% of our waste cards, plastic skeletons and any expired cards. We are now offering a further service to our clients, enabling them to send back their expired cards. The recycling of the plastic includes the chip and antennae meaning 100% of the card is recycled. The cards undergo a regrind process on-site and are then recycled for use in the construction industry.
