Buying Real Christmas Trees Benefits Our Environment

Uncle says, NO PLASTIC TREES! Each holiday season news articles, web sites and commentators debate whether it is better for the environment to use a plastic artificial Christmas tree or a real Christmas tree. Uncle says “be green and buy real green”. A real Christmas tree is five times more environmentally compatible than a plastic artificial Christmas tree. 

Real Christmas trees from Grass Pad are the eco-friendliest answer. While they’re growing, real Christmas trees support life by absorbing carbon dioxide and other gases while emitting fresh oxygen. Every acre of real Christmas trees grown produces the daily oxygen requirement for 18 people. 

Real Grass Pad Christmas trees are 100% grown in the United States of America. Buying real Grass Pad Christmas trees helps local small businesses and and independent American farmers. There are about 21,000 Christmas tree growers in the United States, and over 100,000 people employed full or part-time in the industry. There are close to half a billion real Christmas trees currently growing on Christmas tree farms in the United States, all planted by farmers.

Farms that grow Christmas trees stabilize soil, protect water supplies and provide refuge for wildlife while creating scenic green belts. Often, Christmas trees are grown on soil that doesn’t support other crops.

Real Christmas Trees are a renewable resource. They are grown on farms just like any other crop. To ensure a constant supply, Christmas tree growers plant one to three seedlings for every tree they harvest.

100% biodegradable real Christmas trees can be recycled into beneficial mulch or used for wildlife habitats. There are more than 4,000 Christmas Tree recycling programs throughout the United States.

Plastic artificial Christmas trees are a petroleum-based, non-biodegradable product manufactured primarily in Chinese factories. Eighty percent (80%) of artificial Christmas trees worldwide are manufactured in China. 

The average family uses an artificial Christmas tree for only six to nine years before throwing it away, where it will remain in a landfill for centuries after disposal.  

No plastic people at Grass Pad. Buy real Christmas trees from real people. Remember, Santa leaves the biggest presents under Grass Pad Christmas trees. Bundle the kids, pack the SUV and come on down to the Grass Pad.
