Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree.

As the post-Christmas blues slowly come to an end, have you thought about how you could switch up on the disposal of your Christmas tree?🎄 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀
“According to the Carbon Trust, the carbon footprint of a 2m-tall real Christmas tree is equivalent to 16kg of CO2 if it ends up in landfill. That’s 100,000 tonnes of greenhouse gases from the 7 million trees that end up languishing in landfills every year.” (Source: The Independent) – so the answer is, don’t let your tree rot away! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀
Nowadays a member of your local charity can come round to collect your tree (prior to opting in) and you would donate a monetary amount to their cause. They would then shred the tree into chipping’s used for parks and woodland areas. The benefit of chipping’s is that they have the ability to hold and retain moisture releasing it slowly into the soil without causing water-logging which can be equally as damaging to plants as a drought.
