What are you doing with all the Christmas cards you've taken down? Why not recycle them with Sainsbury's?

Customers have until Tuesday January 13th to bring in any of their old Christmas cards and wrapping paper to the collection box situated at the front of Sainsbury's.

The recycling drive is part of the retailer’s partnership with the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) UK.

The collected cards will be recycled by Sainsbury’s and it will make a donation to FSC UK in the New Year based on the volume of cards collected in its stores.  Last year it donated over £9,000 to help the FSC with its work to promote responsible management of the world’s forests. 

Sainsbury’s Trinity Walk Store Manager Sean Higgins  said: “We had a really good response from our customers last year and with their help, we’re hoping to make an even bigger contribution this time. It’s a great way to continue that goodwill feeling and ensure your cards are put to positive use, which is all part of our No Waste to Landfill commitment”.

Rosie Teasdale, Deputy Director, FSC UK added: “Sainsbury’s Trinity Walk donation provides essential support for our education and awareness-raising work, helping us to support people in the UK protect the world’s forests.  Recycling paper results in less waste going to landfill, it reduces the pressure on forests, and it’s helping to give future generations the gift of healthy forests.”

Additionally, all ‘paper’ wrapping paper can also be placed in the Christmas card recycling collection boxes to support this activity. Sainsbury’s sells over five million rolls of wrapping paper each year - that’s enough to stretch from London to Auckland.
