My son and I sure did enjoy them. We sat right down and played a game (or 4) of cards with them. It took a little while to get use to the green card coloring but other than that these eco-friendly cards look, feel, and play just like regular Bicycle cards (except they are better for the environment).
I really like the fact that big name companies like Bicycle are getting on the Eco-bandwagon (call me skeptical but I have a hard time believing that they are making eco cards for the good of the world). I really am ok with this type of marketing though. I believe that it brings awareness and exposure of eco-issues to a wider range/variety of people that may not otherwise be exposed to it. As long as they are not green-washing, it is ok with me.
