Parley for the Oceans has made quite a splash in the sneaker world thanks to its ongoing collaboration with adidas, and now the environmental organization focused on ocean conservation is teaming up with American Express to bring consumers and corporations new Green Cards manufactured primarily of reclaimed plastic. The cards, made primarily with reclaimed plastic collected from beaches, islands and coastal communities by Parley for the Oceans, will be available to American Express customers by the end of 2019.

Their partnership extends beyond the cards and aims to speak to Parley's AIR Strategy: Avoid. Intercept. Redesign. To achieve this, American express is introducing the company’s first card recycling program. Rolling out in 2020 for U.S. Consumer, Small Business, and Corporate Cards, the program will enable card members to send back their expired or non-working Cards to American Express who will ensure that they are properly recycled.

The company has also pledged to eliminate single-use plastics across its operations globally and has already removed single-use plastic straws and coffee stirrers from its global headquarters, managed-office facilities and operating centers. In addition, American Express has replaced single-use plastics in all its U.S. cafeterias with reusable or compostable packaging and utensils, as well as removed all single-use plastic in their Centurion Lounges.

Lastly, American Express is supporting the nonprofit organizations Ocean Conservancy and National Geographic Society with nearly $2 million in grants to support their programs that educate, raise awareness and help address the issue of marine plastic pollution.
