Recycling your Christmas Cards this January 2017

 

19 October 2017 - Update

I popped into my local M&S tonight and there I discovered that - apparently - M&S aren't running their Christmas card scheme this year.  

So please keep an eye on this page and come back soon, and I will let you know if I can find out more...

For those of you who don't know, M&S have planted one tree per 1,000 used Christmas cards they've received for years.  They've done this in conjunction with the Woodland Trust.

About the Woodland Trust

The Woodland Trust's work is vital to help preserve British woodland and also crucially to preserve the habitat of thousands of UK species.

The Woodland Trust works to protect ancient woodland and create new - such as the First World War Centenary Woods. It cares for over 1,000 woods, which are open to the public every day of the year.

British woodlands are vital to wildlife, and also in absorbing CO2 and producing oxygen - they are the British equivalent to the Amazon rainforest.
