Woodland Trust and Marks and Spencer join up to recycle Christmas cards
A GREENER environment is on the cards courtesy of a recycling scheme now under way.
Specially-marked Christmas card recycling bins are being placed in 300 Marks and Spencer stores around Wales.
The chain says it is committed to planting one tree with the Woodland Trust for every 1,000 cards brought in.
Last year the scheme helped plant more than 8,000 trees.

The Woodland Trust, Coed Cadw, said the trees were planted with the help of communities, schoolchildren, farmers, universities and councils.
"A billion Christmas cards could end up in bins," said a trust spokesman.
"As Wales is one of the least wooded countries in Europe, the public's support of the M&S scheme is vital.
"Unlike most doorstep recycling services, it ensures vast quantities of cards are recycled and it supports the Woodland Trust."
It runs until January 31.
