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!

1. Discarded Plastic Bottle Christmas Tree

We found this wonderful tree on 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

4. Kids Toys Christmas Tree

The holidays are all about giving, well how about taking last years toys and making a Christmas tree?

Here is a huge Christmas tree made from Lego, the beauty is you can disassemble it once the holidays are over! You could use Mechano or K’Nex as an alternative too;

5. A Tron Inspired Christmas Tree!

With the upcoming remake of Tron hitting the big screens it seems only fitting that we include a pure LED tree inspired by the neon glow of the Tron movie! You could make an LED light tree using lights wrapped around a tomato plant stake or some other cone shaped frame;
