Getting rid of the penny! We use raw copper and zinc to make each one, which has to be mined. Metals mining is vastly environmentally destructive. And think about the cost of transporting newly minted coins: it’s heavy cargo, and the heavier the cargo, the more fuel we use. In addition to environmental factors, penny production is actually costing us money. It costs more (1.7 cents) to make a penny than the penny is actually worth.
As far as paper cash goes, its already kind of “green”. Old money gets sent back and is recycled to make new money.
