Alternative wooden 4ft Christmas tree, £210, bombus.co.uk OrIgInaLLY designed for shop window displays, ‘flatpack’ trees — made from two pieces of wood slotted together — are now making an appearance in our homes too, partly thanks to their popularity on Instagram.
after putting the tree together, you can string lights and hang decorations on it. ‘Look for wood that’s been sustainably sourced,’ says Emma. ‘and use it for as long as possible — not just as a fashion fad. at the end of its life, try to find a wood recycling service, perhaps at your council recycling centre, rather than burning it.’ LOOKS: 3/5 ECO-FRIENDLINESS: 4/5 SCORE: 7/10
