I’ve always thought cutting down a perfectly good tree, dragging it inside for a month and than just throwing it out, was a waste.

That’s why I buy an itsy-bitsy Charlie Brown tree. And then give it to my mother to plant after the holidays.

But if that’s not eco-sensitive enough for you, get a cardboard tree!

It’s the brainchild of Cloud Gate Design, LLC. At $22.95 and standing 3-feet tall, it’s made from recycled sheets of cardboard and includes cardboard ornaments too!

Or, you can use your own ornaments and lights and color it with crayons or paint for a personal touch. The website offers some suggestions.
