An Iowa woman is touting the need for more programs to recycle your old Christmas cards. Leslie Goldsmith works for a recycling program that encompasses Taylor, Adams and Union Counties. She started a program last year to recyle Christmas cards from her area and got a tremendous response. Goldsmith says the cards can be used for a lot of things — including art projects for nursing. She says there’s a need for more recycling programs in the state. Goldsmith says her experience also shows Christmas isn’t the only season that generates cards for recycling — but birthdays, father’s day, mother’s day and others. Goldsmith encourages Iowans to look for ways to recycle cards instead of throwing them away.
