Personal Credit Cards
Amazon Watch Affinity Card
One PacificCoast Bank has partnered with Amazon Watch to offer a card that will help defend the Amazon! Amazon Watch works directly with indigenous communities and at the regional and international levels to protect ecologically and culturally sensitive ecosystems in Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador and Peru, where millions of acres of rainforest and tropical wetlands are under threat from oil and gas development, mining, mega-damns, roads and other unsustainable infrastructure projects.
Amazon Watch’s theory of change centers on advancing indigenous rights and protecting their ancestral territories. Recent studies confirm that community-based protected areas are more effective in conserving biodiversity and forest cover than traditional conservation strategies such as creating national parks. Within this context, they work on five cross-cutting initiatives—corporate accountability, indigenous rights, clean energy solutions, international finance and development, and climate change—to target synthetic causes of deforestation in the Amazon.
Each purchase with this affinity card is an action in support of the lungs of our planet and the people who protect it!
One PacificCoast Bank is offering the Amazon Watch credit card in partnership with TCM Bank, N.A., a national bank owned by ICBA Bancard, a subsidiary of the Independent Community Bankers of America.
