REAL Christmas Trees

REAL Christmas Trees

The next time someone tells you that they have a FAKE plastic Christmas tree because it is better for the environment, remind them about the giant plastic factory in China, belching black smoke. Or think about the trees that were sacrificed to make the huge cardboard box that the FAKE one came in, and all the diesel fuel that was wasted to ship it across the Pacific. Then read the warning label, reminding you to wash the lead contamination off your hands, and cautions against breathing the toxic fumes of the PVC plastic.

Next imagine a “REAL” Christmas tree growing in California, converting green house gases into pure Oxygen for us to breath and providing jobs in the USA instead of China. Then think for a moment about how multiple “REAL” Christmas trees are grown, every few years from the same stump. Or consider how the recycled “REAL” tree is ground up for mulch and used to minimize the use of herbicide and replenish the soil. Finally just hug your “REAL” tree and breathe in that fresh forest aroma.

Is that a No-Brainer or what?
