Boston-based card manufacturer Arthur Blank has introduced a plastic card that uses corn, an annually renewable and domestically grown resource as an alternative to traditional petroleum-based plastic cards. “CornCard USA,” manufactured from NatureWorks, is available in nearly the entire line of Arthur Blank’s product offerings including: gift, loyalty, debit, membership, and ID cards. Arthur Blank says the new card is identical to traditional plastic cards in look, feel, and durability while offering the same reliability and functionality. The company notes that if you compare bushels of corn to barrels of oil over the past 5 years, crude oil prices have skyrocketed, while U.S. corn supplies and prices have remained relatively constant.
