Cards go back to their roots
Shoppers are being encouraged to recycle their old Christmas cards at Sainsbury’s Ashford Bybrook store.
People have until next Tuesday to deposit their cards in a collection box situated at the front of the Simone Weil Avenue store.
They will be recycled by Sainsbury’s, who will make a donation to the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) based on the volume of cards collected.
Last year Sainsbury’s donated almost £9,000 to help the FSC with its work to promote responsible management of the world’s forests.
Ashford store manager John Webb 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.”
