One of the most underrated features of plastic is the ease with which it can be recycled. There are PVC cards on the market which degrade when they come in contact with such organic materials such as composite and soil, and this can happen as quickly as within four years.

New cards can be made from recycled plastic too, further reducing the environmental footprint.
