**Excuse this for being two days late, I'm a horrible blogger at the moment** In the last STWF meeting, we touched on this subject briefly. Is it more environmentally friendly to buy a live tree or a fake one? Lets weight out the pros and cons. Pros(live tree): * buying a tree can become a family tradition *the trees are renewable resources * compostable *smell great Cons(live tree): *fire hazard * more work * allergies * non re plantable (if you buy it without the bulb) * less trees in the environment Pros(fake tree): *last for years * easy to set up *almost no effort into up keep Cons(fake tree): *made from non renewable petroleum *cannot be recycled * the environmental effects that go into making the tree Many people have their own ideas. So decide, real or fake? Leave us a comment!
