Is your credit card plastic your drink of choice?

Is your credit card plastic your drink of choice?

Our market-leading 100% digital card creates seamless digital payments for our clients all across Australia. Now you can pay in real-time with your gold reserves just like you pay with any other debit card. With a ‘no plastic’ company policy, the card is accessible on Apple Pay, Samsung Pay and Google Pay – without the plastic!

Whether you’re conscious of it or not, every one of us is likely to consume about 1,769 plastic particles per week just through our drinking water. 

The plastic problem is bigger than ever and it’s only set to escalate from here. 

The move towards digital processes may seem like it’s too little too late but if the alarming statistics have taught us anything, it’s that even the smallest plastic items are a linchpin to greater environmental destruction.

Around 6 billion credit cards are produced every year. With a replacement rate of 3–4 years, these seemingly harmless cards add up to around 5.7 million tons of plastic in landfills. As it is with most other plastic waste, a portion of this inevitably ends up in the ocean. 

Plastic cards, quite literally, sleep with the fishes. They go on to retain their form for many decades before finally breaking down into smaller pieces known as microplastics. Which means they never really leave. 

Here, at Rush Gold, we turn the world’s oldest trusted currency into the newest. Part of revolutionising the way transactions work in the modern age is responding to the factors that threaten us all. 

Climate change, pollution, and the runaway effects of plastic on our lives is a massive concern for many of us.

Digital payment methods are the way forward. Digital platforms address environmental concerns, and security concerns all while giving you the convenience you need from your payment method. No cash changes hands and no contact needs to be made.

This is the selling point that leads the charge in a world post-COVID-19. As we adapt to a life that is rife with new outbreaks and changing regulations, the way you pay needs to remain secure and stable.

Mckinsey’s 2020 Global Payments Report anticipated a drop of 4–5 percentage points in global cash transactions. Digital payments step in to fill the chasm left by cash transactions. 

On top of their safety advantages, contactless transactions also take close to one-tenth of the time of a traditional electronic transaction. Which means with every digital payment you make, you save your time and the environment.

That’s where we come in. We give you complete control over your wealth and help you break free of the bank. 

Our 100% digital card is all about creating seamless digital payments for our users all across Australia. Now you can pay in real-time with your gold reserves just like you pay with any other debit card. With a ‘no plastic’ company policy, the card is accessible on Apple Pay, Samsung Pay and Google Pay – without the plastic!
