Livewire, the parent company behind Green Gift Cards, has been operating and innovating in the card market since 2006 and is widely seen to be a leader in the environmental alternative field.

Our strategy is to remove the burden on the consumer and card issuer on how to deal with the card at the end of its short life. Our solution removes the need for specialist and expensive recycling and most importantly avoids sending the cards to incinerators and landfill. We will continue to educate organisations on how simple it is to switch to cards that are certified plastic-free, compostable and recyclable in regular household waste streams.
