A Christmas Card Recycling Scheme in the UK has been a huge success, recycling 40 million cards (787 tonnes)...

Michael Meacher MP, the UK's Environment Minister, today congratulated the Woodland Trust and its partners WHSmith and Tesco

Over the past five years the Woodland Trust has recycled nearly 200 million cards – raising funds to help the Trust to create and care for woodland at 28 sites across the UK.

In addition to this new planting, the 2003 scheme alone saved 13,379 trees, 5,509,000 gallons of water, 3,305,400 KWh electricity, and reduced emissions by 15,740 lbs of carbon dioxide.
