Ever Considered Renting Your Christmas Tree(s)?
Dear Friends & Neighbors,
(Please click on red links & note magenta)
This year, during the holiday season, I’ve come across a rather new business concept: Renting Living Christmas Trees service. Let’s take a look at the reasons and process of running such as business, in different parts of the world, in these videos below. Did you know that the carbon footprint of a plastic tree is 20 kilogrmas , nearly treble that of a real tree? So, the idea of reusing the same tree every year would be ideal.
One carmel business rents out potted christmas trees allowing central coast residents to go green on the holidays, in the video “renting living Christmas trees for the holidays“, below:
Christmas-goers typically choose between hurting the environment by buying a real tree, or buying a fake. Now they can rent trees too, in the video “Save the planet, Rent a Christmas Tree“, below:
Gail Adrienne, Executive Director of the Nanaimo Area Land Trust is looking to sell roughly 80 Christmas trees this year, all between the ages of 5 and 10 years old. The offer is also on the table to rent a tree. Trees are selling quickly, and customers are looking to the future, planning a home for there investment following Christmas. Weather you’re buying or renting, there are advantages when you invest in a potted tree. So if a tree is still on your Christmas list this year, take some time to pick the right one, even if you decide to rent, in the video “Rent A Tree“, below:
Families are growing so attached to their real Christmas tree, they’re using the same one every year for up to a decade and even naming it. A special rental service at Primrose Vale farm shop in Gloucestershire, means families can rent a tree for Christmas and return it to the shop to be replanted and cared for until they collect it again the following year. Hundreds of households are so fond of their fir-ry friend they request the exact same tree each Christmas for up to ten years, with many even naming their tree so it won’t get confused with others. Paul Keene, growing manager at Primrose Vale farm shop, said:”Thousands of families rent trees from us each year. We’ve got several thousand in stock now and it’s growing every year, in the video “Company Allows Families To Rent The Same Christmas Trees Each Year“, below:
The holidays are upon us, and that means much of the world is decking itself out in Christmas cheer. But this time of year also generates a lot of waste- much to the chagrin of environmentalists. Mexico, however, may have a greener option for spreading joy. CGTN’s Alasdair Baverstock reports, in the video “Renting living Christmas trees for greener holidays“, below:
Every bit of reduction on carbon footprint would be welcomed. So, next year, perhaps you’d consider renting a living Christmas tree and possibly check out some of these places to see if they’d rent you a living Christmas tree: https://www.yellowpages.com/orlando-fl/christmas-tree-rentals
