At Kroo, we care about you, your friends, and the planet. That’s why our cards are eco-friendly and we pledge that once we make enough profits to support our operations without the need to ask our shareholders for more capital, we’ll contribute 5% of our after-tax profits to good causes.


What makes our eco-cards exceptional?

Kroo’s eco cards are treated with an additive that accelerates degradation – this means the card itself will degrade about 10% within 45 days if placed in a microbe-rich environment, such as a biologically active landfill (for comparison, a plastic bag takes about 20 years to degrade). However, you can be sure that the Kroo card won’t degrade in your wallet, as it’s just as robust as regular bank cards.

The card packaging that your card arrives in is 100% biodegradable, 100% compostable and 100% recyclable, and the inks are all plant-based.

As for the chip and other non-plastic components – currently, we use industry-standard products that don’t degrade easily, but we’re looking forward to the future! There are new developments in sustainable materials and manufacturing every day now, and Kroo is always looking for new solutions to reduce our negative impact on the planet.
