“We’re so pleased to be bringing our customers more sustainable Christmas options this year. We’ve introduced new felt, paper and wood decorations that will last many Christmases to come as well introducing biodegradable glitter across decorations. The initiative I am most happy about is that we will be using sales from faux Christmas trees to plant trees at our Leckford Farm and the surrounding area this year.” said the Christmas buyer for the store Jason Billings-Cray.
