Meg recycles Christmas cards to save woods and trees.

Monday, January 9, 2006

Sheffield Heeley MP Meg Munn has given her support to Tesco’s and the Woodland Trusts Christmas Card Recycling Scheme - which is now running for the fifth consecutive year.


Recycling bins will be in Tesco stores and people can deposit their cards until Tuesday 31 January 2006. Last year the scheme exceeded its 50 million target, totalling 58 million cards, and its aim this year is to recycle 60 million cards.


Meg said:

“I urge everyone to recycle their Christmas cards and protect our much loved but fragile woods and trees. As a member of the Woodlands Trust I am delighted to add my support, we must recycle as much of our waste as possible so we can protect our environment.”


Jenny Sacre, Tesco Environment Communications Manager said:

“Everyone can make a difference in this scheme and after the twelfth night we would urge all of our customers to load their empty Tesco carrier bags with their Christmas cards and bring them to any Tesco Extra or Superstore to recycle.”


Ioan Reed-Aspley of the Woodland Trust said:

“Christmas is a time when a huge amount of consumer waste is generated. By simply recycling Christmas cards we are doing our bit to address the problem and help save woods and trees. There are many wider environmental benefits too. Recycling just one Christmas card saves enough electricity to allow five people to watch the Queen’s Christmas day message.”


The 2006 scheme is backed by national recycling campaign, Recycle Now and is supported by local authorities. To find out more about the scheme visit www.woodland-trust.org.uk/recycling .
