That is because EcoCard guarantees to plant a tree for every transaction card dispatched. On top of this, the cards themselves are eco-friendly. There are four different options to choose from, namely the PETg Card, which is made from earth-friendly plastic, the Recycled PVC card, the Ingeo PLA card, which is made from plants without oil, and my personal preference, the Bloomcard. This card is constructed from recycled garbage and wildflower seeds and when planted, actually grow into buttercups, daisies and poppies!

Ho To Open An Ecocard Account
To open an EcoCard account, I simply logged onto their website, clicked on "Register" and completed the relevant on-line forms. Here, I was able to select my preferred currency and was pleased to note that I could select log-in information and passwords that I alone would be privy to when using my EcoCard account. The registration was free and required little effort. I noticed that there were help facilities, but I did not feel the need to utilize them, as the web site gave me all the information I needed. I was a little disappointed that my EcoCard took over five weeks to arrive at my doorstep, but once delivered, I was able to deposit funds via my credit card within minutes. I did have the option of transferring money via debit card or money transfer, but from experience, I have found that money transfers into pre-paid debit card facilities can take a few days.
Ease of Use
I didn't have any problems finding online casinos that accepted my EcoCard, since it is available wherever MasterCard is accepted. The funding of my casino account using my EcoCard was also a pleasant, painless affair and it cost me 4.95% to do so. I did learn though learned that there were no monthly or annual card fees, which, when compared with bank credit or debit cards, is quite a blessing. However, it must be noted that withdrawals from the EcoCard back into a bank card incurs a charge of £10. This in itself is not that bad, but I was a little upset when I tried to withdraw monies I had deposited, only to be told that I could only withdraw winnings.
The EcoCard has other limitations despite being a refreshing and easy-to-use payment solution. Firstly, it appears to be limited to the UK and European market at present, and users need to hold accounts at affiliated banks in order to qualify for an EcoCard. This information is available on their website, so I suggest checking it out thoroughly before opting to "Go Green".
