She said: “I am really proud to be part of a campaign that is so successful. Being a keen recycler myself, I am aware of the need for us all to start recycling more and this is a great way to start.”
Woodland Trust trustee Dr Nicola Nicholls said: “It is fantastic news that this year’s campaign has smashed all previous records. The final tonnage figures exceeded the 60 million target by more than 22 million — an increase of 41% on last year’s figure of 58 million cards collected.”
The Woodland Trust worked along with national recycling campaign Recycle Now, WHSmith and Tesco to deliver the campaign.
