A Green(er) Christmas Tree

5 Dec

rented_treeI’ve been hunting around for a guilt-free Christmas tree solution and hadn’t really found anything that rang my bell.  As a city dweller, where in the world would I plant a live tree?  And, who knows what goes into making plastic trees!  The cardboard trees are pretty cute, but they’re not green – literally.  They’re more of a “drab” color as Craig’s dad would say.

Thanks to Derek Gordon for dishing up a great idea on his “Daily Casserole“!  Friends of the Urban Forest and SF Environment have a great promotion now where you can take in a tree for the holidays that will then end up planted in San Francisco.  They do all the dirty work too – I just placed my order!

Now we just have to keep Ed the cat from demolishing it…he loves his “greens.”
