Recycle Your Christmas Cards

Sainsbury's Nine Elms Point is providing an in store Christmas card recycling service in support of the Forest Stewardship Council UK (FSC UK) to help protect the world's forests.

Customers can recycle their Christmas cards until mid-January via an in store collection point which is located at the front of the store foyer area.

Collection boxes will also be in over 1,000 Sainsbury's supermarkets and convenience stores throughout the country. Online customers can also have their cards collected from their homes when they receive their online shop.

Sainsbury's will recycle all collected Christmas cards and make a donation to FSC UK based on the volume collected in all its stores. Last year customers donated 98 tonnes, resulting in a donation of over £15,000 to FSC, to support its work to promote responsible management of the world's forests.

Sainsbury's Nine Elms Point Store Manager Andy Robins said, "We've always had a brilliant response from customers and we hope to collect even more cards this year. The recycling initiative is a great way to support the invaluable work of the FSC and help customers to tackle Christmas waste and put it to positive use."
