Kelly sent us this question: I know it's early, but I'm already thinking about Christmas. After years of spending Christmas with the in-laws, we will finally be having Christmas at our own house this year. We have been steadily trying to "green" our home and I wonder how Christmas can fit into this. Specifically, I wonder what everyone's take is on the Christmas tree issue -- artificial tree? Live tree? Live, potted tree? No tree? What I'd really love is an aluminum tree. Is there a company that makes them from recycled aluminum? We have two kids so we can't be completely unfestive -- any thoughts from AT readers? It might be a little early, but sometimes this sort of things takes advance planning! We're tossing this one out there to the readers: What do you think? And, have you ever seen a recycled aluminum tree? Image: Via Curtis Fletcher; sxc.hu
