The Bambooxmas tree is a sustainable alternative to both the traditional and the artificial Christmas tree. Our wood is carbon negative, i.e., it absorbs more CO2 from the atmosphere than it costs to produce and transport. Bamboo absorbs the same amount of CO2 per kg in 3 years (harvest-ripe), as a coniferous Christmas tree does in 10 years (harvest-ripe). This means the conversion of CO2 takes place 3 times as fast. In addition, the bamboo plant continues to grow after harvesting it, unlike a traditional Christmas tree.
A bamboo Christmas tree is not sprayed with environmental toxins. All bamboo is treated with boric acid (including your flower sticks), which is a natural substance that already exists in the soil environment. No artificial irrigation, artificial fertilizers, or pesticides are used to grow bamboo. Our manufacturer uses sun drying instead of oven drying, which reduces production emissions. In addition, the factory is located at the plantation itself, which minimizes transport in connection with the production.
With a lifespan of 10 times longer than a traditional Christmas tree, we save the environment from significant amounts of carbon and environmental toxins.
Did you know? :
In Denmark, 10 million Christmas trees are produced annually. Most of them are exported on long-term transports to the rest of the world – some even as far as the Middle East.
We consume 1.5 million natural Christmas trees annually in Denmark alone.
– Imagine if we left the forests alone?
*When you buy our tree, you support The Forests of the World with DKK 20 (approx. 2.70 EUR). For that amount, 47 m2 of forest is protected.
