Top Five Eco Christmas Tree Ideas
There is an ongoing debate about whether a real or a fake Christmas tree is more eco-friendly. We wanted to share some alternative ideas to guarantee that you have an “Eco Christmas Tree” this year!

2. Recycled Newspaper Christmas Tree
Our first recycled newspaper Christmas comes once again from the Panama Casco Viejo blog;
The second example of a recycled newspaper tree is one that we bought at a local crafts store, we display it every year on our side table and love that it’s eco friendly.
3. Toilet Roll Christmas Tree!
Made from paper towel cores and old mailing tubes, this Christmas tree even came with its own gift! We found this wonderfully eco friendly tree on Flickr thanks to the thedaisychick
