GoHenry makes all cards biodegradable to help kids live greener

Ahead of Earth Day, GoHenry, the prepaid debit card and financial education app for kids aged 6-18, has made all its cards biodegradable.

From today, all GoHenry cards*, including customised cards, will now be printed on compostable polylactic acid (PLA). This follows research that 76% of UK kids** would prefer an eco-friendly bank card and builds on the success of GoHenry’s existing range of Eco Cards, which launched in 2020. Producing cards with PLA, which is derived from field corn waste, uses 65% less energy and 68% fewer greenhouse gases than conventional plastic.

Louise Hill, Co-Founder and COO of GoHenry said: “We’re all about helping kids make smart choices with money and now they can help keep the planet healthy at the same time. We know our customers are passionate about the environment and our Eco Cards can support them in living greener day-to-day. When we launched our initial range of Eco Cards two years ago, the ultimate goal was to eventually print all of our cards on the greenest material possible and it’s great to see that vision come true. It’s an important step for GoHenry as we continually build and implement more sustainable practices.”
