The carbon footprint of commercial Christmas tree farming, harvesting, distribution and disposal is astronomical. But this year, Greenmoxie is looking to recycled Christmas trees and upcycled Christmas trees for our festive inspiration.
According to data from the Nielsen Research Foundation, approximately 21.6 million real trees and 12.9 million artificial trees will be purchased by U.S. households this Christmas. A study by the American Christmas Tree Association found that consumers would have to keep an artificial Christmas tree for 10 years in order to offset the carbon footprint of natural trees they would have bought during this period. Now you can make your DIY recycled Christmas tree out of stuff you already have.
Here is some inspiration for your recycled Christmas trees
