Whenever we talk about helping those in need, there's a tendency to set up a false dichotomy of us versus them. Keeps the road between us long and the weeds tall so that we can tell ourselves they were never us and we could never become them.

Before you head out into the woods with your ax, in search of the perfect Christmas tree, consider a greener alternative.
The greenest tree is a potted Douglas fir from a local nursery that you can plant outdoors in warm weather. Your little fir tree will clean your indoor air during the holidays and clean carbon out of the atmosphere year round when you transplant it. If you bought a live tree every year, and planted it in spring, you could offset your family's carbon footprint in 20 years and create a green holiday tradition.
