Unifimoney to Use Ocean-Bound Plastic for Contactless Cards


Unifimoney Inc. will use ocean-bound plastic for their Visa contactless cards. Over 6.4 billion payment cards are made globally each year (Nilson).

The cards – named Second Wave – are EMV compliant, dual interface capable and feature a core made with recovered ocean-bound plastic. For every one million Second Wave payment cards produced, its estimated that more than one ton of plastic will be diverted from entering the world’s oceans, waterways, and shorelines (CPI Card Group).
