THE ARTIFICIAL VS REAL VS THE POT GROWN CHRISTMAS TREE

Renting a pot-grown Christmas tree has many advantages for the environment.

It’s less resource-intensive than growing them on land because the grower can give each pot the right amount of fertiliser and minimal pesticides; only requiring 1/8th of the land use. Whilst conventional farming often uses heavy machinery to spray across a large area.

ARTIFICIAL CHRISTMAS TREE

You would need to use an artificial tree for approximately 10 Christmases in order for it to keep its environmental impact lower than that of a responsibility disposed of real tree.

REAL CHRISTMAS TREE

If disposed of in a sensible manner a real Christmas tree has a far lower carbon footprint than an artificial one.

THE POT GROWN CHRISTMAS TREE

A pot-grown Christmas tree lives on, consuming more CO2 year on year!
