Buro North has developed an ecologically progressive Christmas tree
November 28th, 2007
80% more environmentally friendly than a traditional pine Christmas tree, Büro North has just released their stylish alternative. Firstly, it is made with environmentally aware materials, which are CNC routered (a low-energy production technique) with waste material minimised by design.
The flat-packed tree is emissions-efficient to transport and the most sustainable feature of the ‘green’ tree is that you can use it for many Christmases to come.
