(SAN FRANCISCO) – The Sierra Club, America's largest and most influential grassroots environmental organization, is partnering with One PacificCoast Bank, FSB, a community development bank, to offer a credit card that supports the organization’s goals and rewards members. A percentage of every purchase made using the Sierra Club Visa Platinum credit card furthers the Sierra Club’s mission to protect wild and scenic places for future generations.

One PacificCoast Bank operates from a triple-bottom-line measuring its financial, social, and environmental impact to meet the needs of its communities.  OPCB is a certified B Corporation and, like the Sierra Club, is concerned with environmental sustainability. Because all of the bank's economic interest belongs to the bank's foundation, all profits must be reinvested in the bank, the communities it serves, and the environment on which we all depend.  Sierra Club members who sign up for the card will be part of a financial revolution that connects fiscal decision-making with deeply held environmental values.

Additional benefits include competitive rates, reward points for travel and merchandise, airline tickets with no blackout dates and Travel Accident Insurance.

The Sierra Club Visa Platinum credit card is being issued by TCM Bank, N.A., a subsidiary of ICBA Bancard that helps community banks build and strengthen their customer relationships with professionally managed credit card programs.

Support the Sierra Club with everyday purchases.  Learn more and apply today at www.SierraClubCard.org.
