It's Magic - Recycling Christmas Cards into Trees

For every 1,000 cards dropped into Marks and Spencer stores for recycling throughout January, a new tree will be planted in the UK. As the nearest M&S store is over 10 miles away from March, CUB (UK) Ltd will have a collection point in the foyer of their offices, which will be open from 5th- 31st January – Weekdays 9am to 5pm. CUB (UK) Ltd March Business Centre Dartford Road March PE15 8AN The UK is 34,000 trees richer thanks to the public's efforts over the past five years that this scheme has been running. Let’s see how many trees we can plant! http://www.woodlandtrust.org.uk/news/latest/christmas-card-recycling-2014/ Fantastic results from the Christmas card recycling campaign Marks and Spencer promised that for every 1,000 Christmas cards bought into its stores for recycling, the Woodland Trust would plant one tree. In November 2014 iiE started a campaign to encourage iiE members to help collect and recycle Christmas cards. Since then, nearly 43,000 cards have been collected by a range of businesses, including Rawlinsons, Cross Keys Homes, Northampton General Hospital NHS Trust, Kitchen Range Foods, Queensgate Shopping Centre, Roythornes LLP, Peterborough Environment City Trust, Peterborough Cathedral, City College Peterborough, Shield Technologies, Bulley Davey, Buckles LLP, Vivacity, CUB UK, and Axiom Housing. These have now been collected by iiE and taken to Marks and Spencer. Thank you to everyone for such a fantastic job collecting the cards! Together we've managed to recycle enough cards to plant over 40 trees! iiE
