Cards with a conscience

Together, we can help turn the payments industry into a positive force by focusing attention on the negative impact of plastic on the environment. Inspired to reduce the amount of first-use plastic in the payments industry, CPI Earth Elements™ is a portfolio of payment cards that incorporate upcycled plastic into the card's construction.

With CPI Earth Elements™ payment cards, you can support your sustainability commitments, while aligning with cardholder values.
