GoHenry launches the first biodegradable debit card for children

GoHenry is a UK-based fintech focusing on pre-paid cards and app for kids (with parental controls). It has just launched its biodegradable card for eco-conscious children.

Recent research showed an incredible 40% of 6-to-14-year olds feel they are directly responsible for saving our planet. GoHenry clearly acknowledged that and has created the Eco Card – first of its kind for kids in the UK.

The dedicated card is made up of 82% bio-sourced renewable materials, takes only six months to break down. At the same time the plastic card can take around 450 years to decompose.

GoHenry has also made a deal with the Eden Reforestation Project. The same organisation that works with Dutch challenger bunq – to plant a tree for each card used. See more about this in the link below.

“We’re all about encouraging smart choices in children and empowering Gen-Z to consider the impact of their purchases,” said founder of gohenry, Louise Hill.

“There’s a whole generation of no-nonsense kids leading the charge for a more eco-friendly approach to the world around them. Our Eco Cards are designed to reflect this passion for the environment and give our young customers the opportunity to go greener, while still taking part in the digital economy.”

“Our aim is to expand our Eco Card range in the future, with the ultimate goal of printing all of our cards on the greenest material possible.” added Hill.
