Wish you all a Merry Christmas! Aren’t Christmas trees a sight? I decorated one recently with the help of recycled materials. Thanks to Friends of the Newton Grove. It was a part of their 4th Annual Christmas Carolling, a free community event. An event full of positivity and warmth!
But, what about artificial Christmas trees? It was found that a natural Christmas tree has lower impacts on the environment than an artificial tree, according to an independent Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) conducted by ellipsos inc., a firm of experts in sustainable development.
And when you are done, there are plenty of ways you can give your tree a new life:
- Make mulch or compost
- Create a habitat for local wildlife, be it birds, rodents, or fishes
- Make DIY projects like the one in the photo above, they can be used as coasters too
- Or simply give it to your local organization who can recycle it for you.
