Win a fabulous recycled Christmas Tree with Recycle Now

When I heard about the recycled cardboard Christmas Tree that Recycle Now was offering in its website competition, I couldn't wait to see it especially as it is based on the inspirational work of designer David Stark.

And I have to say, I am not disappointed. The 6 ft tree sculpture certainly looks like it could feel at home in my own living room.

The Christmas Tree competition is part of Recycle Now's campaign to raise awareness of the amount of waste that is created over the Christmas period and to remind people that most of it can be recycled.

The website also includes a whole list of inspirational tips on how to reduce waste, by upcycling everyday products into jazzy decorations. There's something else of interest on there too, which I'll tell you all about tomorrow.

In the meantime, why don't you pop over to the Recycle Now site and sign up for the draw. It's free to enter, but you'll have to be quick as the closing date is 17th December. However, before you go, take a peek at the video below, which reveals how this unique piece of art was made.

That is, as they say in these parts, "awesome dude"! And I do have an awful lot of cardboard to get rid of right now. Problem is I reckon it would take me more than 24 days to get it done, and I'm pretty sure it wouldn't look that good afterwards.

Wow!!! This Christmas tree is fantastic! Very stylish!
It's a pity I don't live in UK.. so I can't participate to the contest to win it... :) The making of is a bit complicated, but there's also a beautiful Christmas e-card to send... it is similar to that one I made last year! ;)

LOL, Hi Eliane - lovely to see you and I hope you're having a great time over in the US. Looks like you're already picking up the lingo. Maybe we ought to have a blogger challenge to make our own. Haha.. I'd definitely win the wooden spoon! :-D

Hi Danda - It's a real shame you can't enter from Italy. But you can enjoy the Christmas card all the same. Have you seen the recycled instruments yet. Have a look at the site. They look really fab. :-D

Hi Sooz - crossing my fingers for you. I'd really love it here too and I certainly wouldn't recycle it afterwards :-D
