Sainsbury’s is boosting its recycling facilities to help shoppers tackle post-Christmas waste.
It is offering Christmas card recycling at 500 stores until 15 January, and will make a donation to the Forest Stewardship Council based on the volume of cards collected.
Recycling banks at more than 300 stores will also allow shoppers to dispose of cardboard, recyclable wrapping paper, aluminium, clothing, glass and plastic.
“We know that our customers care about the environment and reducing their impact on landfill so we’re providing really simple and hassle-free ways for them to live more sustainably and recycle their Christmas-waste once the holidays are over,” said Sainsbury’s head of sustainability Paul Crewe.
“With Christmas cards they can also help make an even bigger difference by simply taking their cards into a store to be recycled, with Sainsbury’s making a donation to the Forest Stewardship Council based on the volume of cards collected.”
