Canada’s New Plastic Money

This week Canada introduced the first in its new line of all-plastic notes – Bills made out of a single sheet of plastic polymer full of high-tech security features. The new notes will last twice as long as paper money and will also be recycled, making them generally greener. According to a news release, Canada will introduce plastic $50 notes in March, and plastic $5 and $10 bills will come out by the end of 2013.
