Buy an artificial Christmas tree at Hermie & enjoy years of (lasting) pleasure!
No more braving busy garden centres every year in your search for a real Christmas tree, which also leaves a trail of needles & gives you a lot of tidying up to do!
Our fake trees are made of high-quality plastic (PE) that lasts a very long time, so our artificial Christmas tree will adorn your living room for several years. The Christmas tree looks equally beautiful every year and is easy to assemble. A sustainable alternative to a real Christmas tree, which you will also enjoy for years!
But how can an artificial tree be sustainable?
It does indeed seem strange that a plastic product can be more sustainable than a natural product, which is why we would like to give you some additional explanation. Producing an artificial Christmas tree requires more energy and raw material than the real deal. But don't forget that that real Christmas tree also needs to be maintained, cut & transported. Moreover, many Christmas tree growers use polluting fertiliser.
Some advice in between: our real Nordmann Christmas trees have no less than 3 ecological certificates in their pockets.
The production of an artificial Christmas tree may be more taxing on the environment but this is then compensated by the longer life span. On average, an artificial tree lasts around 10 years. So it is in the interest of the environment, but also your wallet, that you set up & store your artificial tree with care!
Generally, real Christmas trees are only used for 1 Christmas season & then end up in a Christmas tree incinerator (very polluting) or on the curb for Christmas tree collection. Do you have a real Christmas tree with root ball or in pots? Then it's a good idea to give it a spot in your garden in anticipation of the Christmas season. But this is not obvious because not everyone has green fingers or a garden, and not every Christmas tree is suitable to go back into the ground. While you can bring out that artificial Christmas tree year after year.
