November 3, 2005

Thousands of pounds of envelope material made from Tyvek nonwovens will be used to make 1.2 million protective sleeves for debit cards. Tyvek maker DuPont Nonwovens has donated the Tyvek  to the American Red Cross, which is distributing debit cards to victims of Hurricane Katrina in the Gulf Coast states. The Tyvek sleeves will be printed with the American Red Cross logo and instructions on how the debit card can be used. The debit card will hold balances between $260 and $1600 to help victims purchase essentials.
    Quality Park, a leading manufacturer and distributor of envelopes and business paper products in the U.S. and Canada, will fabricate and print the envelopes. The St. Paul, MN company can make 30 million envelopes per day; it is giving the Red Cross priority to help the agency assist 750,000 people with various forms of money including debit cards, cash, vouchers and checks.
