Sainsbury's will make a donation to FSC UK based on the volume of cards collected between 26 December and 8 January.

Sainsbury’s is providing an in-store Christmas card recycling service to support FSC UK to help protect the world’s forests.

Until 8 Jan 2018, customers can recycle their Christmas cards via an in-store collection point.

Collection boxes will be in over 1,000 Sainsbury’s supermarkets and convenience stores throughout the country. Online customers can also have their cards collected from their homes when they receive their online shop, making it easier to recycle and help reduce the amount of waste going to landfill.

Sainsbury’s will recycle all collected Christmas cards and make a donation to FSC UK in the New Year. Last year, customers donated more than 98 tonnes of cards.

Old 'paper' Christmas wrap and defunct Christmas lights can also be recycled via the collection points.
