Starting to think about where you're buying your Christmas tree from this year?
One option is Green Elf Trees — a London-based company with a good heart, and eco credentials to boot.
All of the trees they sell are sustainable (meaning they source from within the UK and optimise delivery). They also offer to take all pot grown and table trees back once you're done with them, so they can continue growing. Plus there's a post-Christmas collection service, with all recovered trees composted.
What's more, Green Elf use out of work musicians, artists and entertainers to deliver their trees; times are particularly tough in this vital field of work, and we think this is a smashing idea. We cannot, however, guarantee that your allotted musician will perform a rendition of O Christmas Tree for you.
The icing on the cake/fairy on the tree: for every festive fir delivered, Green Elf Trees donate £3 to a charity from their list, which includes GOSH - Children's Hospital Charity, Crisis and AgeUK.
Green Elf Trees deliver to a large tranche of Greater London; check out their delivery areas here.
Note: this isn't an advertorial — we just think this kind of sustainable, charitable Christmas effort is worth shouting about.
