Did you know that 45% of all greeting cards sent are Christmas cards? But sadly, since there’s not much use for them after Christmas is over, most of them are sent to the landfill because they cannot really be recycled. Just in the UK, 1 billion of all Christmas cards are sent to the landfill every year! Just imagine the waste that creates. Not very Christmas-y, is it?
