Welcome to this month’s TTR Festive Newsletter!

Christmas Trees:

A Christmas doesn’t have to involve a ‘real’ Christmas tree! Why not try an alternative approach such as an artificial tree that can be re-used, a succulent Christmas tree, or reusable wooden trees.

For a more real Christmas tree feel, a potted Christmas tree can be taken care of and grown outside each year to brought inside during the festive season.

For those who cannot compromise on a real Christmas tree, try recycling your tree at various recycling or collection points such as the Re3 recycling centre in Reading, Bracknell and Wokingham.

Christmas decorations and gifts:

Whether you are throwing out old unwanted decorations,  starting a new Christmas decoration theme this year, or discarding broken or torn decorations,  here’s how to do it in a  safe and sustainable way. Does it really need to be thrown away, or can it be kept for future use?
