This year, choose a living Christmas Tree

During the holidays, we spend time with our friends and families, eat delicious comfort food, and relax with a mug of cocoa (or a glass of mulled wine) next to a fire. However, there is a flip side to the season that is not so cozy.

Between cards, gift wrap, and disposable decorative plants, it is estimated that the United States throws out 25% more trash during November and December than in any other time during the year. Nearly 25 million Christmas trees and 34 million poinsettias are bought during the holidays and the majority of those end up in landfills. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Here are 5 reasons why you should have a living a Christmas Tree this year instead.

1. They grow with your family.

If you have young children, imagine how fun it will be to have a living Christmas Tree that grows with them year after year! Buy a Tabletop Norfolk Pine and track the tree’s growth along with your child’s every year.

2. They’re good for the earth, and your home.

Nearly 25 million Christmas Trees are sold each year in the United States and almost all of them end up in a landfill. Buy choosing a Norfolk Pine as your living Christmas tree, you are reducing your carbon footprint and improving the air quality in your home.

3. No more stepping on sharp needles!
