Merry Chrismahanukwanzika. It doesn’t matter what you celebrate this time of year, the holidays always provide some extra easy ways to live greener.
Haifa, Israel’s third largest city, sure is making a creative effort to green their festival of lights. GoIsrael.com has the scoop on the city’s creative Christmas display,
Haifa will celebrate this Christmas in an eco-friendly fashion with the unveiling of a new 38-foot Christmas tree made entirely of recycled water bottles and other plastic objects donated by its residents and on display in the city’s center.
The tree, comprised of 5,480 recycled bottles and illuminated by LED lights, was created by Israeli designer Hadas Itzcovitch and her father, artist Ernest Itzcovitch, to raise awareness of environmental issues. The “green” tree comes just in time for the 90,000 travelers from around the world expected to arrive in Israel for the holiday.
That kind of trumps the real vs fake Christmas tree debate doesn’t it?
