Why An Artificial Tree Is A Better Way To Go For Christmas

As we close in on this last week before Christmas, there may be some of you who have yet to purchase yours. If you’re looking for an ethical way to purchase a Christmas tree rather than go to a tree lot or cut a tree down, the better option would be to go artificial. Not only does purchasing an artificial save millions of trees each year, but saves water as well. When a living tree is cut, it needs to be watered throughout the time it spends indoors, hence wasting water.

In addition, real trees have pest problems and are usually grown with pesticides that are toxic to wildlife and, in some cases, to people. Here are a few choices when searching to find that perfect artificial tree:
