Eco Christmas Tip 2 – Cards

As we run up to Christmas, Royal Mail deliver as many as 150 million cards per day. Shockingly up to 1 billion of these end up in the bin and can take up to 30 years to decompose.

To ensure you’re not part of this major issue put all your cards in your paper recycling bin this year. If all the cards that are thrown away got recycled, it would help save the equivalent of 248,000 trees.

Even better than that, why not send an E-Card (sent online). This is a great popular alternative. They cut your carbon footprint, save trees and save money.
