Whether it's buying disposable fashion or taking an Uber, everyday spending has a significant impact on the climate. To nudge people in the right direction, Maryland-based Future just announced the Visa FutureCard, which rewards 'climate smart' spending.
When cardholders purchase items like low-carbon foods or secondhand clothing, when they take the bus or charge their electric car, FutureCard rewards them with 5% cash back (plus 1% cash back for all other purchases). A product or service is defined as being 'green' if it has a significantly lower carbon footprint than the most common alternative.
