Did you know that you'll need to keep that plastic Christmas tree for about 20 years before it has a lower carbon footprint than a real tree? O Magazine's December issue has some tips to celebrate a green Christmas this year, including where to find a pesticide-free tree (greenpromise.com/resources - click on Organic Christmas Tree Farms), where to recycle your tree into compost or wood chips (earth911.com), and cities where you can "rent" a tree that will be replanted for you after the holidays (Portland, Oregon: livingchristmastrees.org, San Francisco: sfenvironment.org/greenchristmas).
Happy healthy holidays!
