The Sustainable Christmas Trees That Also Give Back
How do you make sure your Christmas tree is as eco-friendly as possible? This new service does it all for you.
Wed 17 Nov 2021
It’s the most wonderful time of the year and Green Elf Trees are working to deliver real sustainable Christmas trees straight to your doorstep with a sprinkle of music magic.
No Christmas is complete without a tree as a centrepiece to your celebrations.
Not sure why a real Christmas tree is greener than a sustainable one? This guide can help.
How does Green Elf Trees work?
Green Elf Trees safely delivers high-quality trees whilst providing opportunities to out of work entertainers and musicians.
The company are keen to minimise any environmental impact of the service and have committed to offsetting their deliveries, investing an additional 50% to guarantee the operations are carbon negative.
This service also contributes £3 of each purchase to selected charities including Mind, Dogs Trust, Great Ormond Street Hospital Charity and Age UK.
The trees are sustainably sourced from Jadcliffe, a grower recognised by British Christmas Tree Growers Association, and start from £54.99 including free delivery.
You can select from potted or planted to cater for your various festive needs.
You can also have your tree collected with their 'Responsible Tree Collection Service' so it can either be composted or upcycled.
The positive impact of a properly disposed of tree has a carbon footprint ten times smaller than that of an artificial breed that takes hundreds of years to decompose!
Eco-friendly Christmas decorations
Green Elf Trees are a one-stop shop for sustainable decorations too, where all trinkets and treasures to top your tree are available to purchase and only derived from glass or wood.
Why does this matter? Close to two thirds of UK households opt for plastic artificial trees which can only ever end up in landfill, where they do not biodegrade.
Plus, all those plastic decorations will break down into microplastics and cause havoc with the environment.
How to use Green Elf Trees
Families and households across London and some neighbouring counties can now order a Green Elf Tree, and take advantage of the 'early bird' sale.
