In 2008, dedicated members of the MNCTA created an industry-wide marketing campaign to impress upon consumers the importance of “Going Green and Getting Real". Whether you believe in global warming, or not, you can appreciate everyone doing little things to help the environment. Eliminating wasteful habits and encouraging natural solutions are practices responsible citizens choose for the improvement of the planet--for us all.
If you are a consumer, buy real trees, at Christmas and throughout the year for your yard. Look for businesses using this logo. They believe in a healthy planet. Don’t feel guilty about cutting a tree growing on a farm. Growers planted them for you. For every tree we sell, we replant 2 or 3 new seedlings to take its place. All those benefits to the environment continue, whether the tree is replanted in your yard or harvested.
