What do you do with your plastic cards when they expire or are no longer useful?

Cut and throw in the trashcan?

Plastic cards like credit/debit cards, gift cards, and membership cards are 100% recyclable when discarded in the Papa Cartão® machine.

We renew and increase the life cycle of the plastic that makes these cards.

We also generate jobs, enable workforce, and take care of the environment.

A simple and objective idea that makes a big impact.


A reverse logistics program only for plastic cards, created and developed by R.S. de Paula, a manufacturer of such products since 1997.

The program is sustained by the tripod: discard, safe, and appropriate.
If the discard is safe, but not appropriate, we don’t participate;
If the discard is appropriate, but not safe, we don’t trust;
If it is safe and appropriate, but not discarded through the Papa Cartão, we don’t exist!

“We not only manufacture the cards, we transform them”
