Recycling Christmas cards

Now it is time to tidy up those Christmas cards and decorations!

Until the end of January you can take your unwanted Christmas, birthday and other greeting cards and envelopes to most Coles Supermarkets and put them in the Planet Ark recycling bins.

Alternatively you can pick up a free postage-paid recycling envelope from participating Australia Post outlets, while stocks last. Just put your cards inside this envelope and post them free at any post box.

One million Australia Post/Planet Ark recycling envelopes have been produced for this year’s campaign.

The greeting cards are then made into new packaging or ‘SAFE’ toilet tissue.

This recycling process saves trees and dramatically reduces waste, giving the environment a very happy New Year.
