A supermarket is urging residents to help the environment and recycle their old Christmas cards.

Customers at the Sainsbury’s store, in Kiln Lane, Epsom, have until January 14 to bring in any of their festive cards and put them in a collection box at the front of the store for recycling.

The collected cards will be recycled by Sainsbury’s and it will make a donation to the Forest Stewardship Council UK based on the number of cards collected in its stores across the country.

Last year, nearly £9,000 was donated to the Council to help with its work to promote responsible management of the world’s forests. 

Sainsbury’s online customers can also have their cards collected from their homes when they receive their online shopping.

Richard Hay, the manager of the Kiln Lane store, said: "We had a really positive response from our customers last year and with their help, we’re hoping to make an even bigger contribution this time.

"It’s a great way to continue that goodwill feeling and ensure your cards are put to positive use, which is all part of our No Waste to Landfill commitment."

Customers urge Supermarket to help reduce costs of family shopping by:

1. Stop buy 1 get one free and Sell 1 at resonable price
2. Stop the inflation busting increases on food
3. Stop making producers change package sizing to keep costs the same by luring customer s into thinking they are getting the same product as last shop.
