Need an eco-friendly tree skirt to match your eco-Christmas tree? I searched high and low to find two options on the market — and they’re totally different in every way.
Terracycle tree skirt. $14.99
Made of upcycled juice pouches and cookie wrappers, these tree skirts are both eco-friendly and affordable — though rather busy, in my opinion. Get them at your local Home Depot or online.
Amenity treeskirt. $130.
Made of organic cotton and hemp, these gorgeous tree skirts are also printed by hand with non-toxic, water-based, eco-friendly inks! However, as you can see by the price tag, eco-chic doesn’t come cheap.
If you’re not too keen on juice pouches but can’t afford the eco-goodness of Amenity, consider hitting your local goodwill and finding some pre-loved clothes you can upcycle into your own eco tree skirt. Both eHow and about.com have detailed instructions — Happy sewing!
