Turn your Christmas cards into trees

The Woodland Trust is again running a "cards for trees" campaign with Marks and Spencer - you can drop your Christmas cards into the recycling bins in local M&S branches. For every 1,000 cards dropped for recycling throughout January, a new tree will be planted in the UK.

Last year more than 8 million cards were collected, funding more than 8,000 trees throughout the UK.

Three years ago local volunteers planted 400 Woodland
Trust trees at Wapley Bushes Local Nature Reserve

Update 12/01/2015:  M&S at Yate haven't got a box for people to put the cards in, but you can hand them to a staff member at the Customer Service / Collection desk just inside the door. I did that this morning - Editor.
