Potted Christmas Trees - Circular Trees For A More Sustainable Christmas
7 million Christmas trees are discarded every year releasing 100,000 tonnes of CO2 into the atmosphere.
That’s why we’re offering to collect our living potted Christmas trees when you buy them from us this Christmas.
COP26 is on our doorstep, and every business is now thinking about what they can do to become more sustainable.
We’ve looked at our plans for Christmas and how we can be more sustainable. We love Christmas and especially having a nice tree in the house. But I remember last year, just after Christmas, walking through the streets of London and seeing all the discarded trees. It was a pretty sad sight.
So having researched the problem and seen the environmental benefit of potted trees, the Box & Sprout team set-out to find a new way of selling Christmas trees.
This year, we’re offering you a choice. You can choose to keep your tree until next year, or we’ll come and collect the tree after Christmas for free and you’ll receive a 20% voucher for next year’s tree.
We’re not here to tell people what they should and shouldn’t do this Christmas. It’s been a tough few years for everyone, and so we’re fully behind bringing some joy and positivity this Winter season. But we also think that customers should be given more choice when it comes to their Christmas trees.
We plan on keeping the trees on-site until next year.
It’s not something we’re really set-up to do, but we’re making space on our site to do it and we’re building the plan for how to care for the trees until next year. We’re using this year as a test year to see if we can make this a really sustainable model we repeat year after year.
We have four sizes of living, potted Christmas trees available on our website:
