The birch wood is harvested from sustainably managed forests.

The idea came about because some Starbucks customers on suggested cards that were more friendly to the planet.

If you can't find them, it looks like people have taken to selling them on eBay for an average of about a buck for cards with zero balance.

  2. Or, you could just use the Starbucks app on your smartphone, and never have to worry about any card, be it plastic, birch, metal, or any other substance, ever again.
