Christmas cards

Every January The Woodland Trust teams up with high street retailers to collect and recycle millions of Christmas cards.

  • Just take your Christmas cards along to participating stores in January.
  • The cards will be recycled into newspapers, paper towels and writing paper.
  • The money raised goes to help the Woodland Trust to plant trees and maintain our woodlands. You really can turn your cards back into trees!
