It’s November! Now I can actually post about the Holidays

After a bit of a wait, I was able to get these very super fabulous recycled Christmas trees made from recycled 55-gallon oil drums in Haiti. They are pretty amazing. I bought one last year for personal use (and, I never have a tree, but just couldn’t resist this one):

Pretty cool, huh? And, not only is it recycled and helps provide a sustainable income to an artisan in the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere, the tree folds up flat and can be used year after year after year.

These’ll be online soon, and I’ll certainly update you when you are able to buy one for yourself or as a gift.

And, there are several little holes on the tree, just perfect for hanging our ornaments. May I suggest adorning your recycled Christmas tree with recycled ornaments made from used newspaper and magazines? Not only are they recycled, their fair trade too, and made by a women’s collective in a depressed urban area in Manila.

The ornament below is made of recycled newspaper “beads” and interspersed with actual small beads:

And, this ornament (below) is made from recycled magazines, turned into “twine”:

And, this beautiful one is made from recycled office paper:
And, this last one is made of newspapers turned into a “twine.”


Again, I’ll definitely update you when they’re online, which should be later today. So far, they’re going fast!

Update! The ornaments are now online at World of Good! Check ’em out.
