We're pretty happy to introduce our latest product to the Meliora Cleaning Products family...Plastic-Free Gift Cards!
Did you know that approximately 2 billion gift cards are purchased every year? That equals a LOT of trash from the polyvinyl chloride (PVC) cards. While PVC is infinitely recyclable, very few curbside programs actually accept it. On top of that, if you cut up a credit card for security, it can't be recycled because it's too tiny and then the PVC leaches out over time.
More importantly, the addition of new technologies like holograms and computer chips to cards has caused too much contamination over the years and have become very difficult to remove before recycling the cards.
On the bright side, there are several big retailers who now use biodegradable corn-based cards or cards from paper pulp. However, why even bother with all of this hassle in the first place?
Our gift cards are plastic-free and zero waste from the get-go. And this is the perfect time to give the gift of a cleaner and healthier home as we're nearing Earth Day, a slew of baby showers and spring cleaning galore.
You can check out the gift cards here! Rest assured - our plastic-free, cruelty-free, toxin-free, paper-free, free-range gift cards are the perfect solution for helping get that friend started on their zero waste journey (especially so they can make their own scent selections!)
