SERIOUS MONDAY: RECYCLING CHRISTMAS CARDS TO PLANT TREES

image1.jpg 

The Woodland Trust hopes to plant 24,000 trees by recycling 100 million Christmas cards in January.

That’s an awful lot of cards folks – so make sure you help the trust to reach its target by recycling your cards at WH Smith, TK Maxx, Marks & Spencer or Tesco. (Some stores are excluded from the scheme but you can get full details here (http://www.woodland-trust.org.uk/cards/ ))

Last year, the trust recycled 93 million cards so with a little more effort, hopefully it will reach the 100 million mark. You can drop off your cards at the store recycling points any time between January 3 to January 31 and you can also request posters to let other people know about the scheme.

(Apparently, if you recycled just one Christmas card it would save enough electricity to allow five people to watch the Queen’s Christmas day message next year. Amazing!)
