Real vs Fake 🌲: what’s more sustainable?

This holiday season, I thought a lot about this question. It hadn’t realllly crossed my mind before - cutting down our own tree is a huge tradition in my family.

But, the environment has been giving me a lot of anxiety as of late (anyone else?!) so I wanted to know: should I switch to a “fake” tree this year in the name of 🌱🌳🌲🌎? Well, the jury is out - real tree for the win 👏🏼 .

Ecologists + experts alike say that unless you’re keeping your plastic Christmas tree for 6 years or more, it’s not as environmentally friendly to go fake. And, with us Millennials switching apartments, cities + countries every year - it’s pretty unlikely we’ll haul that sh* with us 😂, ya feel.

Here are a few other interesting facts to noodle on: 🌲 real trees are completely compostable (duh!) - if we dispose of them in right way they can be homes for fish + other animals or help build other stuff as sawdust
🌲 real trees are grown with the PURPOSE of being cut for the holidays. More trees in the world cleaning the air, the better.
🌲 the all-in “costs” of fake trees are high. Most are made in a different country - think about all that CO2 that it takes just to get them to your door.

So, with all that in mind, D + I picked out a beautiful 7-footer at the church on our block. They’re grown by a small farm on the East Coast + smells DELISH.

Most importantly as you 💭 about this: there’s no “right” or “wrong” answer. We’re all doing the best we can, at all times. So let’s celebrate anyway - maybe just a little more mindfully 🥰🌲.

Looking back on some of the amazing trips I got to do this year. One of my favorites was camping in the middle of an orchard in Capital Reef for Kyl’s birthday..

Very often I am with my thoughts with this night. I read recently that right now the activity of the sun is pretty low and the next peak will be around April 2025. This cycle is going to the end. So something is finishing and something is begining.

Ever wonder how much work goes into professional photographs like this one? 🤔 Ep. 93 doves deep into the mind of Willie Martini and unpacks some of the not-so-glamorous moments of photography as an art form 🤙🏻 Posted @withrepost • @williemartiniphoto Thank you @drinkcoffee_dostuff for being absolutely amazing. Somehow, making the best coffee I've ever tasted hasn't gone to their heads and they're still incredibly rad down to earth folks trying to make the world a better, tastier, more caffeinated place. They just celebrated their 1 year anniversary at the end of June and can't think of anything better to say than a HUGE HELL YEAH! Really pumped to see them grow and takeover. If you haven't tried it yet, get some inside you right now.⁠

Thật là lạ, ngay cả khi nghe người nào đó kể chuyện đời họ, mình cũng không có cảm giác chắc chắn là đã biết. Không chắc chắn được cái củ hành đó đã được bóc đến lớp tận cùng chưa.

What our trip to Zion looked like vs what we really did 😻.

Beautiful sunset at Lake Helen.  High Camp Lake Helen perched at 10,400 feet above sea level, it proves to be the customary half way point on the Mt. Shasta. Elevation: 10,400ft. Mt. Shasta.  Fall, 2019.
