Sustainable Christmas Tree Programme
A charity dedicated to preserving the island’s heritage has launched a “sustainable” scheme to rent out Christmas trees.
The Bermuda National Trust will hire out potted cedar trees for people to enjoy over the holiday season before they are planted.
Karen Border, the charity’s executive director, said: “Every year, thousands of Christmas trees are imported to Bermuda and then thrown away after the holidays. Imported cut trees and plastic trees have a high carbon footprint and are not good for the environment.
“We aim to make this holiday tradition more sustainable and help fight climate change by renting out 100 small potted Bermuda cedar trees to bring the festive spirit into homes for the holiday season.
