And Now, Today’s GOOD NEWS: Here’s How You Can Make Sure Your Old Christmas Tree Gets … Uh … Treecycled

We enjoy a good Christmas tree as much as the other guy (in fact, probably a whole lot more), but what do you do when Christmas comes and goes and that tree just ends up on the sidewalk? Well, why not treecycle it?

The people at greenlimbs will be collecting Christmas trees at multiple locations on January 5th. All you have to do is drop off the tree (or talk to them about their curbside pickup program) and they will chip the tree into mulch to give it a second life in various neighborhood parks, gardens and recreational centers. Last year, they chipped 338 trees at their Whole Foods drop-off location. This year they’ve got more locations and a larger goal: 500 trees.

You can continue to check their website for an updated list of drop-off spots, or talk to them about their pickup program. And it’s all to save some trees from landfills and turn them into mulch for their second life. It’s some good stuff.

So there you have it: The world is not totally made of shit. Have you got some good news? If so, send it to tips[at]philebrity[dot]com with “GOOD MOTHERFUCKING NEWS!” in the subject header — we’d love to hear about it.
