Climate change: Primary school bans children from sending Christmas cards to help protect the environment

A headteacher of an English primary school has banned students from sending Christmas cards out of concern for the environment.

Jonathan Mason, head of Belton Lane Primary School in Grantham, Lincolnshire, said the holiday tradition contributes to carbon emissions.

He also claimed a number of “concerned” students had approached him regarding the environmental impact of Christmas cards in the school.

“Throughout the world, we send enough 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,” Mason told parents in a letter, published by the Daily Mail.

“So in order to be environmentally friendly in school we will not be having a post box for Christmas cards from this year onwards.”

Mason has since been labelled as a “grinch” by a number of unhappy parents, claiming the headteacher had “the joy taken out of Christmas”.

Don’t let these joyless climascolds ruin anything. Instead, ask them if they still use energy at their homes, eat meat, take fossil fueled travel.
