If you are weighing up whether to buy a real or an artificial Christmas tree this year, let us help you with the facts.
A real Christmas tree bought locally has the lowest carbon footprint.
According to the Carbon Trust, a real Christmas tree has a “much lower” carbon footprint than an artificial tree, particularly if it is disposed of thoughtfully.
Interestingly, a two-metre Christmas tree made from plastic has a carbon footprint of around 40kg of CO2, over 10 times greater than that of a real tree, disposed of properly. https://www.bctga.co.uk/news/Real-Christmas-Trees-are-Truly-Green
