PEOPLE are being urged to recycle their Christmas cards.

Marks and Spencer in High Street, Stamford, is working in partnership with conservation charity the Woodland Trust to collect old Christmas cards and has a box in store for people to drop their cards into.

Last year, Marks and Spencer collected 73 million Christmas cards, which were used by the Woodland Trust to plant 17,000 new trees.

A spokesman said: “By providing a recycling service for our customers’ Christmas cards we can reduce the number of cards that end up in landfill, save energy and help the Woodland Trust to plant more trees.”
