Christmas Green Tips

Christmas is just around the corner. Here are some tips to green this holy day, starting from the Christmas tree you buy. If you purchase the tree from an actual Christmas tree farm, more trees are planted for next year, and that has an environmental benefit for everyone. However, if you decide to take an ax into a forest and cut down your own, that’s a big no-no. This is because the tree is not replanted. On top of this, if left alone, that tree could survive for decades. Here’s a plug for a local tree farm. Peltzer Pines in Silverado Canyon (7851 Blackstar Canyon Road, at the corner of Santiago Canyon Road and Silverado Canyon Road) is open. Start a sustainable Christmas tradition by making a fun trip there to select your tree! It’s sure to be a nice experience out in the canyon, too. They’ll cut it for you and help you load it into or on top of your car. You’ll be supporting local commerce, too, and reducing carbon emissions by eliminating a lot of transportation of trees grown far away. As for plastic trees, if you already have one, use it. Since most artificial Christmas trees are made out of PVC, they are not recyclable. If you decide to get rid of it, donate it to a thrift shop or sell it online.
