Dreaming Of A Green Christmas?

It’s the most wonderful time of the year…to recycle! At Ovolo, we have Ovolutionsed Christmas and flipped it on its head (literally!) with our upside down Xmas trees in all our hotels from Hong Kong to Australia. Not only do they look funky but we’re also making this year our most eco-friendly, green Christmas yet. There’s no need to be a Grinch and send your tree off to landfill – here’s our top tips on how to be sustainable during the festive season.


Once Christmas is over and you’ve taken down the tinsel, it’s time to think about recycling your Xmas tree! Real trees are much more sustainable than artificial trees and can be easily recycled. Local authorities often arrange curb-side pick up or special drop-off points during the new year, so check out your local authority website.


If your garden needs some lovin’, there’s nothing better than fresh mulch to perk it up. Xmas trees make the perfect mulch and, bonus, your garden will smell wonderful! If you don’t have a mulcher, you can simply put the branches in your compost and let the magic happen!


Why not recycle your Xmas tree the natural way and chop it into firewood? You’ll be grateful during the chilly season when you’ve got the fire roaring with your very own recycled firewood.


If you didn’t purchase a real Xmas tree, you can still get into the Christmas spirit and recycle it. Pop it in the cupboard to bring out next festive season or send it to your local charity shop who can re-sell it.


There you have it! Our top tips on celebrating a green Christmas and recycling your Xmas tree in true Ovolo Christmas spirit. If you’re looking for some funky Christmas inspiration, check out @ovolohotels and be inspired by our upside down Ovol-ised Christmas trees! Merry Christmas from Team Ovolo!
