Eggs in the Fossil Fuel Basket

To celebrate becoming a petrostate (when we put all our economic marbles in the fossil fuel basket), Canada is moving to an all-plastic, all-fossil-fuel based currency system. It uses PVCA (Polyvinyl Chloride Acetate) plastic credit cards, PVCA plastic debit cards and Guardian® polypropylene bills. There are still some all-metal coins, though we recently dropped the penny and may soon drop the nickel.
