I love the holidays and celebrating Christmas with my family and friends. We usually travel and spend the holidays somewhere else as both my in-laws and my parents live in different cities but this year we are celebrating Christmas here at home.
Looking for the perfect Christmas tree that had minimal environmental impact and that combined both modern and traditional styles in one I found the Massimo tree from Cascades Boutique. The Massimo tree is made of 100% recycled cardboard and it comes in a variety of sizes. There are two models available, the natural tree and the Christmas tree of yesteryear.
I received the six and a half (6½) feet tall natural tree style to try out and I absolutely love it. I really like the fact that it is super easy to assemble and you can dismantle it and reuse it every year. This eco-friendly tree is also very easy to store in a small space.
The tree comes with cardboard lights and stars to decorate it and give it a more traditional look. You also get a set of multi-colored LED lights. LED lights consume minimal energy compared to other Christmas tree lights as they operate on very low voltage, making them safer and of course eco-friendly.
In the box I received a 65ml bottle of Aliksir fir tree mist. This provides the scent of a natural tree and it is made with 90% organic ingredients. How cool is that? Now my house has the scent of a natural Christmas tree without having to go out and cut one, plus I can control the scent as well.
The tree was super easy to put together and I like that it is made of very sturdy cardboard. I expect it lasting us for many years to come. And once we need to dispose of it it can go straight into the recycling bin, unlike plastic artificial Christmas trees.
We LOVE our Christmas tree this year. Thank you Boutique Cascades!
