Heady pine and fir are some of the most evocative Christmas scents, but the gorgeous trees are only on display for a few weeks before ending up in the discard pile at the curb. Extend the life of your Christmas tree by purchasing a live potted tree. If you live in a small space, you can also create a Christmas tree alternative by decorating a potted plant – Norfolk Island Pines work well for this. Finally, you can even craft or purchase a tree made from cardboard or wood , which will last for years with no messy needles to clean up. If you still crave that all-natural evergreen scent, wreaths and swags are a more sustainable choice, as they’re made from the boughs of live trees that can be harvested again and again.
