Easy DIY – How to make a Sustainable Christmas Tree
To tree or not to tree? That is the question many of us trying to live a little more sustainably wrestle with this time of year.
Real cut Christmas trees seem like the most sustainable solution until you think about it rotting away in landfill for the next six months. The most common option is to pick a plastic tree from the shops. Then you’re faced with the whole plastic issue, and you would need to keep it for at least ten years to offset the materials, shipping, and carbon. You could go without but who wants to be the Grinch that stole Christmas?
There’s no 100% sustainable solution to the Christmas tree problem, so this year, I hit up Pinterest for inspo and had a crack and making my own eco-friendly Christmas tree.
I’m not usually a DIYer and was a little surprised by how much I loved making this. Best part. It was so easy and cost me nothing.
