BIRCH HANG­ING TREE WITH JUTE STRING

Scottish Daily Mail - - Christmas Life -

Birch Christ­mas Tree Hanger, £14.99, light­s4fun.co.uk A TREND born from so­cial me­dia, rus­ti­clook­ing hang­ing trees — made with wooden branches strung to­gether with jute string — take up less room and use fewer re­sources than many other types of tree.

‘Jute, a veg­etable-based fi­bre, is more en­vi­ron­men­tally friendly than cotton but it tends to have trav­elled a long way from where it was pro­duced,’ says Emma. ‘Pick a smaller one, as it will have used up fewer re­sources.’ Look for sus­tain­ably sourced, FSC-ap­proved wood — or bet­ter still, for­age for fallen branches to make one your­self.
