Support tree charity by recycling your cards
THE Forest Stewardship Council will benefit from funds raised through a recycling drive at a Warwick supermarket.
The Sainsbury’s branch in Saltisford is inviting people to drop their Christmas cards into its recycling bin - and the store will make a donation to the charity based on the volume of cards collected.
Store manager Carl Jenkins said: “We know that our customers care about the environment and reducing their impact on landfill, so we’re providing really simple and hassle-free ways for them to live more sustainably and recycle their Christmas waste once the holidays are over.”
Other items, including batteries, wrapping paper, aluminium cans, foil and single-use baking trays, clothing, glass and plastic, can also be recycled at the Warwick supermarket.
Sainsbury’s has estimated that recycling such items could save 4,200 tonnes of carbon dioxide, which is equivalent to taking around 1,300 cars off the road for one year.
The fundraising recycling bin will be at the front of the store until January 15.
