Are Fake Christmas Trees Really Better for the Environment?
Should I get a fake or real Christmas tree? The question that gets asked all too much. Fake trees are convenient and don't bring outside things like dirt and bugs into your home, but are fake Christmas trees better for the environment?
Typically for every Christmas tree cut down on a farm , three more are planted! Which is awesome for the environment! When fake plastic Christmas trees are discarded, they can sit in landfills for thousands of years.
The choice is yours! I personally have always been a fan of real trees, mainly because my family goes and cuts one down National Lampoons style every year! It creates great memories! Last year we cut down one that had two trunks! Double the tree, double the Christmas spirit!
