Would banning the penny help the environment?

    Yes, absolutely. By discontinuing use of the penny, we would use a considerable amount less metal every year (especially zinc).  In addition, pennies are often thrown out and discontinuing the use of the penny would mean less litter, especially in cities.  

    It wouldn’t help as much as say, everyone in America commuting to work by bike twice a week, but given the uselessness of the penny, it can’t hurt at all to stop making them.
