PEOPLE on the Isle of Wight have been encouraged not to throw their old Christmas cards in the bin, but help the environment instead.
Sainsbury’s customers at its Cowes and Newport stores can recycle cards as part of the supermarket’s partnership with the Forest Steward Council UK (FSC).
Sainsbury’s will make a donation to the FSC based on the volume of cards collected. Last year almost £9,000 was donated to support the FSC’s work to promote responsible management of the world’s forests.
Additionally, all 'paper’ wrapping paper can also be placed in the Christmas card recycling collection boxes.
