Is scratch card coating bad?
« on: 04/02/2009 13:15:00 »
Okay, dudes and dudesses, like most people I am worried about the environment. To that end, is the silver coating used on those damn scratch cards which are everywhere these days bad for it? What is the effect of all those little bits of silver floating around, after being scratched off? What about the production of it? And what is it made of, anyway?

I think they're usually made of latex...
