It’s xmas tree season again, and this time I’m still on time for my j’acusse.
In a city where bio supermarkets and farmers markets are no longer a hip but well established institutions; in a city where there’s a name for parties that donate what’s made to good causes (soliparties) and in a city with the higher number of vegetarians and friends of the animals and the environment I have ever seen… What the hell is going on with xmas trees?
Trees are decorative with some lights and colourful bubbles on them – but this is not what they were made for. Trees are alive. Trees help us breath. Trees give us shadow. Birds, butterflies and other beautiful creatures live in trees. Shouldn’t we be taking a little care of them? The solution is simple – one just needs to look for a tree that can go back to where it belongs: the forest.
Buy a xmas tree that has been cut off from the ground, and it will die in your living room and you’ll end up abandoning it in the street between the 2nd and the 15th January.
Buy a xmas trees with roots, that’s planted in a pot with sole, and you’ll be able to give it to an association that will take care of it and replant it after xmas.
