Rent a tree – a new Christmas tradition?
Real or fake? It's the age-old question many families face every time they have to pick out a Christmas tree. Do you buy a real one and feel the guilt of cutting down a precious resource that you're just going to toss on the curb? Or do you buy a reusable plastic tree and face the carbon footprint it took to make the fake evergreen? You could buy a potted Christmas tree but it very well could die under your care. Another option has sprung up: renting a real, live, potted tree. The tree is delivered and then picked up after Christmas. It's eventually planted by professionals in places that need trees.
