WE CARE
ABOUT OUR
ENVIRONMENT

We can’t all live in areas of outstanding natural beauty, we know, but SOME of us are lucky enough to. So please excuse us for bragging!

However, by living and working on the edge of the North York Moors National Park the team at eco-cards understand the importance of protecting what nature has gifted us.

ECO-CARDS DO NOT
USE OXO-BIO PLASTICS

The European Commission said it will take steps to “restrict the use” of oxo-biodegradable plastics (OBP) across the EU following concerns that the material fragments into microplastics that pollute oceans.

The EC warned that biodegradable and compostable plastics could lead to greater littering and compromise recycled material streams unless they were clearly labelled.

EC statement: “As regards so-called oxo-biodegradable plastics, there is no evidence that they offer any advantages over conventional plastics.
