Chartered Christmas – Committed to Environmental Sustainability

Dec 12, 2018

We buy our Christmas tree from Kavanagh Trees, member of The Irish Christmas Tree Growers. The Irish Christmas Tree Growers represents those growers who are committed to producing trees to the highest standards and in an environmentally sustainable and professional manner.

We choose a real tree instead of an artificial on, because, as Kavanagh's say:
“The conifer that we produce removes a lot of carbon from the atmosphere and releases oxygen, so consumers have a choice between “oil” or “soil”, i.e. plastic (non-renewable resource) or real (beneficial to the environment).”

Once Christmas is over, and we are miserably wondering why we ate so much chocolate, the tree is collected and mulched for compost.
