Treecycling Is The Greenest Way To Go This Christmas
‘Tis the season to be sustainable – here’s how to recycle your Christmas tree in the UAE
Nothing beats having a real Christmas tree in the house as the focus of your festive decor – but disposing of it responsibly once the party season is over is often as annoying as treading on all those fallen pine needles with no shoes on.
To help make the whole process of saying farewell to your fresh fir tree a far more sustainable one, home improvement giant ACE has launched an environmentally-friendly recycling scheme designed to offset your festive carbon footprint.
Available at selected ACE stores across the UAE from January 2-16, the ingeniously-named Tree-Cycle Programme allows customers to drop off their unwanted (and undecorated!) real Christmas trees and have them recycled into a bag of compost, free of charge.
In collaboration with Y.E.S (Your Environmental Savings) Full Circle, the international, tech-based, climate change, and circular economy platform that supports people and organizations to become global sustainability champions, the ACE Tree-cycling program is open to all those who want to dispose of their trees in the most environmentally-friendly way. Better still, all those tree-cycling will benefit from a 10% discount voucher on the garden and outdoor products at select ACE stores when they go to collect their bag of compost.
Real festive trees can be dropped off at ACE’s stores in Dubai Festival City, YAS Mall, Abu Dhabi and its new branch at Dubai Festival Plaza.
