The tradition of the Christmas tree goes back several centuries and different sources relate its origins. In Canada, it was introduced in the late eighteenth century, even before being established in England. The various elements of ornamentation of the Christmas tree were first made at home, before being mass produced. Originally, it was illuminated with small candles. These were replaced at the beginning of the twentieth century by light bulbs. Other variants, such as outdoor and artificial trees, appeared at about the same time. (Wikipedia)
Have you ever wondered what is the most ecological option between natural and artificial fir? Well, according to the David Suzuki Foundation, it is better to opt for a natural tree rather than an artificial one:
“Speaking of trees, I'm often asked whether an artificial or a real tree is better. A lifecycle study conducted by ellipsos Inc., a sustainable development research firm, shows that real trees are better for the environment than artificial trees.” (www.davidsuzuki.org)
Artificial trees can not be recycled, reused or converted to compost. In addition, the PVC and lead they contain remain in landfills for several generations. The Christmas tree industry is creating thousands of jobs in rural Quebec and Canada, and is providing to the market a great product that is an integral part of our heritage.
Trees are the lungs of the earth. Each hectare of Christmas trees produces enough oxygen to meet the needs of 40 to 45 people. The air we breathe is filtered by these trees and can absorb, throughout its life cycle, up to 32 tons of pollutants such as carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide and ethylene. (Ref.: Agri-Réseau) In Canada, more than 40,000 hectares are dedicated to the production of Christmas trees.
In the United States, some 500,000 hectares are devoted to it. Christmas tree plantations produce oxygen and filter the air for 2 million people.
