Christmas Tree FAQ | Selecting and Caring For Your Christmas Tree

Christmas TreeSelecting and Caring For Your Christmas Tree

The key to caring for your tree is to ensure that the tree stays as fresh as possible. One of the many benefits of selecting a live tree is that you are sure to get a very fresh tree. If you do decide to buy a precut tree there are a few tests you can perform to make sure that the tree is fairly fresh. First, gently grasp a branch between your thumb and forefinger and pull it toward you. Very few needles should come off in your hand. Second, take a look at the ground around the tree. You should not see an excessive amount of green needles on the ground. Some interior loss of brown needles is normal and will occur over the lifetime of the tree. Once you have chosen your tree, whether you cut it yourself or purchased a precut tree, you should keep it in water in a sheltered, unheated area such as a porch or garage to protect it from the wind and sun until you’re ready to decorate it.

Uses for Plastic Grocery BagsUses for Plastic Grocery Bags

Additionally, the market for recycled plastic is thus far underdeveloped.

This “urban tumbleweed” clogs the gutters, kills wildlife, makes the world less beautiful, and seems to reproduce under the kitchen sink. According to the Wall Street Journal, the U.S. runs through 100 billion plastic shopping bags every year. Though recycling should be the destination of most plastic bags, reusing the bags before you recycle them, and avoiding using plastic bags at all when possible, are the best ways to truly reduce the number of plastic grocery bags out there. Here are 30 ways to do just that. Read more…
