Glitter cards

glitter cards not recyclable

Everyone loves a bit of glitter, especially at Christmas, but sadly glittery and metallic paper and card can't be recycled.

When it comes to recycling your cards, if you have any with glittery sections, tear these off and only recycle the non-glittery bits.

Did you know?

In London, over Christmas, the amount of paper and card we use could wrap Big Ben more than 34,000 times, the Gherkin over 30,000 times and the London Eye over 6,500 times!

If you're into your arts and crafts, why not turn your glittery cards into something new?

Here are some ideas to get you started:

  • Gift tags

  • Postcards
  • Bookmarks
  • Napkin rings
