Christmas Cards Banned At England School

 

A Lincolnshire, England elementary school has banned Christmas cards because the principal feels they are bad for the environment. Jonathan Mason wrote a letter to parents that reads, ”Throughout the world, we send enough Christmas cards that if we placed them alongside each other, they’d cover the world’s circumference 500 times. The manufacture of Christmas cards is contributing to our ever-growing carbon emissions.”

 

Here What Parents Had To Say…

 

“Why should children have the joy of taken out of Christmas? Why can’t all these cards be recycled anyway? And I buy a lot of Christmas cards for charity.”

 

“It’s great to see them come out of school with their cards and a smile on their faces. It’s a Christmas tradition they have had for a long time and now they are taking it away. I know we have to protect the environment, but these are a few Christmas cards once a year and to be told about this on a piece of paper seems contradictory.”

 

”Telling people to stop sending cards in a letter sent out to hundreds of kids stinks of rank hypocrisy. … They are mostly recyclable anyway. I agree that environmental issues are important but I don’t see recyclable Christmas cards as a massive contributor to these problems.”
