The world's first wooden debit card TreeCard is hotly booked
TreeCard is the world's first wooden debit card, issued by the German company Ecosia. Ecosia is a search engine, similar to Google and Baidu. Unlike ordinary search engine companies, this company will use part of its advertising revenue to plant trees, hoping to improve the living environment of humans in this way.
The TreeCard will be first issued in the United States in early 2021. EU/UK will have to wait until the end of the year, so friends who want to try new things can use the US address to register. Apply for free before December 1, 2020. The application link is: Apply for TreeCard for free
The TreeCard debit card is made of cherry wood, and the core material is recycled plastic bottles. Using wood to make cards, will it waste a lot of wood? Not at all, because one tree can make 300,000 debit cards. The coolest thing is that each card is unique, because there is no exactly the same wood grain.
According to the introduction of TreeCard's official website, they will provide a mobile banking app, which can provide functions provided by traditional mobile banking apps, such as balance check, real-time transaction records, debit card freezing, and consumption reminders. Since it is a debit card, it will definitely be assigned a checking account, which is probably similar to Sable and Revolut.
