Sustainable and Earth-Friendly Recycled Content Card Films

Finally you have a sustainable choice for your card core and card overlay material!  No longer are you left with using virgin, non-recycled plastic. Our new SecondLife card films are designed for secure or non-secure, single and multi-layer cards and are produced from certified, 100% pre-consumer recycled material!


Trust and Verify!

Some companies like to make claims of recycled content with no real proof.  At kp, we back up our claims with third-party proof!  All SecondLife® card films, including SecondLife overlay films, are produced with 100%, certified pre-consumer recycled material!  See the buttons below to download our certifications!



Did you know?

The sustainability impacts of plastic based products versus paper based with recycled content is not what you might expect!  The production of paper based item uses:

  • 3.5 times the total energy (MJ)
  • 1.5 times the total fossil fuel (kg)
  • 4.8 times the solid waste (kg)
  • 2 times the GHG emissions (tons)
  • 17.3 times the fresh water usage (gal)
