The worlds first beach waste Christmas tree

This festive season, we introduce the world’s first beach waste Christmas tree – a sustainable alternative to your tree.

Our Christmas trees divert hard-to-recycle plastics, often collected from litter picks, beach cleans and other recycling schemes – preventing the waste from being pollutants in our environments, going to landfills or being incinerated.

Much conversation surrounds the environmental effect of having a real tree (often spruce, pine or fir tree) actually has. The suggestion is usually that a plastic alternative is a more planet-friendly solution. Still, most artificial trees are made from PVC, which takes hundreds of years to break down and release dangerous toxins. 

Which is why we’ve created an eco-minded alternative that genuinely makes sense. Each large Christmas tree is equal to 47,145 facemasks or 165kg of beach waste, equivalent to the weight of a polar bear!

Not only are our trees non-toxic, made of long-lasting UV stable recycled plastic – but they can also be recycled over again. We pledge to recycle any damaged or unwanted trees at their end of life. 

Dr. John Kazer of the Carbon Trust told the Guardian that a 6.5ft artificial tree comes with a carbon footprint of around 40kg of greenhouse gas emissions – And a real tree has a footprint of about 20kg’s. Our trees are a fully carbon-neutral alternative, as we boast a manufacturing energy offset solution!

Christmas trees are currently available to pre-order for Xmas 2021 – contact Jayne at jayne@reworked.com
