Did you know? The life span of a Christmas tree, once it’s cut, covers about four weeks if it is watered regularly, and kept in a not too warm, not too cold, not too humid room.

A Natural or an Artificial Tree, which is eco-friendlier?

Artificial trees have four times more of a carbon footprint than natural trees. And most of them are made with PVC, an oil-based product which takes 200 years to break down. An artificial tree can be an eco-friendly solution only if it is kept for more than 20 years. However, people get rid of them on average after 6 years of use. Natural trees are therefore the best ecological choice; plus, they’re biodegradable and often have a second life use when they are gathered after the Holidays to be recycled (compost, mulch, animal food, etc.).
