Dobbies has launched a new campaign to encourage shoppers to think sustainably this Christmas.

The garden centre’s annual ‘Bring your Christmas Tree Home Day’ takes place on the first Saturday of December and marks the day most shoppers visit their local garden centre to pick up their real cut or pot grown Christmas trees.

Dobbies launched a new range of real Christmas trees for every space this year.

This ‘Bring your Christmas Tree Home Day’, the retailer is encouraging people who are buying real trees to think ahead about how they can reuse their Christmas centrepiece once the festivities are over.

The garden centre has listed ways on how people can repurpose their cut Christmas trees to create a wildlife haven for small animals and insects to shelter in during the winter months and reduce waste in the new year.

This is part of the #SustainableDobbies campaign, in which the retailer raises awareness of sustainable products and practices for customers and supporters.

“Choosing a real tree is one of the most-loved Christmas traditions, and on this year’s ‘Bring Your Christmas Tree Home Day’, we want to encourage people to be mindful of how they can recycle their cut real trees once the festivities are over,” Dobbies Horticultural Director, Marcus Eyles said.

“Cut real Christmas trees can be a great tool when it comes to creating a safe place for wildlife to shelter during the winter months, so we’re delighted to show people how they can make use of their trees once the Christmas decorations have come down.”
