ISLANDERS will be able to recycle their Easter egg packaging and support an environmental charity at the same time at an Isle of Wight supermarket.
Sainsbury's will have a special recycling point at its Newport store until the end of the month.
People will be able to drop off, foil, plastic and cardboard from their eggs for recycling.
The retailer will make a donation to the Forest Stewardship Council based on the volume of packaging collected.
Last year the scheme led to a £9,000 donation to the FSC nationally.

Why don't Sainsbury's just give FSC the money,and we put the recyclable packaging in our green wheelie recycling bins as we do everyday.

Just open the boxes and re-cycle whilst you are there if you bought the eggs from Sainsburys, saves taking all the packaging home in the first place. At least many of the manufacturers have stopped putting the plastic egg shaped shells in the boxes these days, so that is a start. Yes agree with Tony though, people can buy a bar or box of chocolates and get far more content that they do with the Easter eggs (okay maybe a little more money wise, but worth it surely?). Top marks to Sainsburys though for at least doing something to help with recycling

Great, when are we all going to wake up and see the rip off here, a few days ago people were queing up to pay way over the odds for the chocolate content in the Easter egg boxes and then it the next few days later they are marching back with the packaging shear madness.
