AFPA promotes use of sustainable Christmas trees

Friday 8 Dec 2017

On Monday, the Australian Forest Products Association (AFPA) will build on last week’s successful delivery and promotion of two sustainably sourced real Christmas trees at Parliament House, inviting House of Representatives Members to get a photo or video with one of the trees, CEO of AFPA, Mr Ross Hampton, said.

“The purpose of the real Christmas trees, which have been strategically placed on the both the Senate and House of Representatives sides of the building, is to remind our MPs and Senators of the importance of Australia’s forest industries and how they help the environment,” Mr Hampton said.

“Last Monday AFPA hosted several of our elected representatives, who were either videoed or photographed near the Senate side tree to show their support. As Australians are getting ready to put their Christmas trees up across the country, everyone should seriously consider the benefits of a real Christmas tree. Not only are real Christmas trees authentic, provide a truly traditional feel and smell great, they’re also better for the environment as they’re renewable and recyclable”.

“Real Christmas trees also remind us all to support the 120,000 Australians who work across the full value chain of our sustainable forest industries right around Australia.
