Sainsbury’s Barkingside’s recycling appeal for Christmas cards and wrapping paper

The holidays may be over, but it’s still the perfect time to give Christmas cards – to Sainsbury’s, anyway.

When decorations come down, the Barkingside supermarket in Tanners Lane is asking customers to bring in their cards and wrapping paper for recycling. The collection box at the front of the store is open until January 14.

The shop will also make a donation to the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) UK in proportion to the number of cards it receives – last year, the amount was nearly £9,000.

Store manager Chris Wager 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.”
