As the last of the mince pies are digested and the Christmas clean up commences, we’re helping local people put their old Christmas cards to good use with a recycling station at our restaurants throughout the month of January.
With the special donation stations, you can tidy up and do good in the process by turning your festive waste into woodland. We’re supporting the M&S Christmas card recycling scheme with the Woodland Trust and hoping to make it easier for our customers to donate with the local collection points.
We’re encouraging our customers to take their cards to the restaurant or send them along with friends or relatives. This simple act will help create habitat for wildlife.
All donated cards will be taken by the restaurant to a local M&S where money generated through the recycling scheme will fund the planting of new trees throughout the UK. One tree will be planted for every 1,000 Christmas cards handed in, so every card counts. Since 2012 more than 32 million cards have been collected and 32,000 trees have been planted.
Drop your cards off at any Pesto by the 28th of January and help the Woodland Trust keep our countryside beautiful and wildlife-rich into the future.
