Yes guys another subtle reminder to be green.

Most large stores will have a huge cardboard container for you to put in your unwanted Christmas Cards, usually there from first week in January. If your like me you also save birthday cards etc to put in as well.

Also Sainsbury, Asda, WHSmiths and Boots doing a similar thing, every little helps....the environment!

i was just thinking the same thing. might even be worthwile purchasing value xmas cards in the 75% off sale, for about 12p for 30, and then cashing them in for points at a return of 4p per card! if only!....

Just seen on the website that you can give your xmas cards to the delivery driver and he will take them back to the store and put them in recycling for you.
Save a trip to the store.

LOL now I'd do that as well! I've already turned our old cards in to gift tags for next year and the backs of them are in a pile in a shoe box to be used for shopping lists etc All I have to do is remember where I put them come Xmas lol!

Done that for the last few years and have such a box full now that this years cards are going to be recycled. Must put them in the car for next time I go in store.
